the last one was to jimmy, about the taillight

The tank and seat are all over ebay and amazon for cheap, theyre fit to a CG125, its a little shorter than the rebel and narrower, but i just had to cut down and reshape the front tank mounts and I used a bent piece of flat stock to make a mount for the back that the seat also clips in under. it wasnt much work really and yeah there are a bunch of different options and version of those seats and tanks available and under $50. like here's the 1st one came up:

$40 + 10 S&H

https://www.ebay.com/p/15017822907?iid=254569725250&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=254569725250&targetid=885298139935&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9015317&poi=&campaignid=9250237603&mkgroupid=93913621876&rlsatarget=pla-885298139935&abcId=1145977&merchantid=138370493&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzNCewYCR6QIV9O7jBx28GgmREAQYByABEgJ_Q_D_BwE

these seats are like $30 and come in a buncha options. had to bend another piece of bar stock to support the middle, it's a cheap plastic pan. people in reviews complained about comfort but honestly it's not bad at all.

My opinion on it, aesthetically the matching 18" wheels is my favorite part and I think what made it really work

and for riding, the narrower tank made it legit MUCH more fun. why I can't say but the same was true for the rebel - just having the narrower tank made it feel i dunno maybe more nimble, cant put my finger on it but it's a lot more fun somewhow
