This Honda Rebel 500 is absolutely perfect! It starts instantly and is ready to ride anywhere. It’s gorgeous, rider-friendly, and stunning to look at. It has been garage kept and is showroom perfect!
The Rebel 500 features a blacked out bobber look, low seat height, low center of gravity and light weight for superior handling, and Honda’s excellent engineering. The riding position is upright with foot pegs below the rider’s body. It’s a perfect bike for a beginner or experienced rider. Its 500cc twin engine and six speed gearbox give it plenty of get up and go. It’s a stunning motorcycle and will draw a lot of attention when you fill up the gas tank—which won’t be often, as it gets more than 65 miles per gallon!
Here’s the skinny on this Rebel 500: 471cc double overhead cam parallel-twin engine with water cooling, six speed transmission, and user-friendly powerband. Wide tires give plenty of grip. Cast aluminum wheels and wide tubeless tires. Light 185 kg(408 lb) weight, fully fueled. Hydraulic disk brakes front and rear. Chain drive. Fuel injection. Electronic ignition. Electric starter. Gas gauge. Blinkers. Low 27.2” seat height. 2.96 gallon gasoline tank capacity. Top speed 110 mph (177 km/hr). And best of all, only 409 miles!
Problems: This is where I would ordinarily go into great detail about every nick and scratch and flaw. Well, guess what? There are absolutely none. This bike is perfect! It has been housed indoors and looks it. No dents, no scratches, no rust, no nothing. Like any motorcycle, there might be tiny imperfections from the manufacturing process, but I’ve not noticed any. Fit and finish on this motorcycle is excellent.
There are tons of accessories for this motorcycle. Honda sells many, and there are many third-party manufacturers. You can customize the Rebel to your heart’s content: bar end mirrors, windshields and fairings, custom seats, luggage, accessories, handlebars, mufflers, forward control, body parts, engine guards, performance enhancers… you name it!
What the Rebel is: Great beginner’s bike and good for old-timers, too. Perfect motorcycle for in-town and commuter and pleasure riding. It will go any distance without breathing hard and all sorts of luggage is available for long distance touring. It’s peppy and cruises effortlessly on the freeway. Lights are bright and brakes stop you quickly, and the engine gets you to speed fast. The Rebel is perfect for drivers of less than average height; you can get both feet firmly on the ground. Best of all, it brings you the reliability and fine engineering Honda is known for.
What the Rebel is not: This motorcycle is not designed for long distance touring, although it can go any distance. Nor is it a racer, although it can shut down many motorcycles with far larger engines. It’s best for short hauls of 50 miles or less (making it a great commuter bike). The Rebel can be a bit cramped for very tall riders, although I’ve seen videos on YouTube in which people 6’2” and over say they are comfortable on it. Well, no motorcycle can be everything to everyone, but the Rebel is perfect for what it is—an economical, fun, safe, and reliable ride.
$500 due via PayPal within 24 hours, balance due within seven days of purchase. You can pay the balance with cash, cashier’s check from a well-known bank like Wells Fargo or Navy Federal or TD, or by PayPal, if you’re willing to cover the fees I will be charged ($0.30 + 2.9% of the purchase price, so figure $30 per one thousand dollars after the initial $500 payment).
If you prefer escrow, that’s fine with me, but I’ve never done an escrow sale and will be in the dark about how to proceed.
You can ride this bike home (it will be fun!), or I will drive it to you, within 50 miles of zip code 07456 in northern New Jersey. (I’d prefer not to go into New York City, but will if you need me to.) If you choose to have the bike shipped, I’ll work with your shipper and ride it to a close by parking area if the pickup rig is too big to negotiate neighborhood streets. If you bring a van or pickup, I’ll help you load and secure it. I have ramps, so you won’t need to bring any. If you plan to ride it home, you’ll need a helmet and eye protection, and, considering the time of year, gloves or gauntlets. If you’ve never ridden a motorcycle, I would suggest you NOT drive it home; instead, get it home and take a good motorcycle driving course.
I have 100% positive feedback on eBay, so bid with confidence.
