 Post subject: Supreme "ILLZUMA" Build Thread
PostPosted: Tue Jan 13, 2015 3:38 am 
Long story short. One of my childhood friends Steve "S3 Industries" decides to pass by my shop one day with his sick ass Zuma. Didn't know wtf it was, but shit looked nasty! After and hour of selling me the concept of what I can do to it, he left me with no choice but to go out and buy one. I found a used 2011 with less than 700 miles on it for $2200 in LA and took a day trip to pick it up. After a day of riding around with my Brightside Scooterwerks homies, and getting left behind I decided to go all out on this build. It took almost a year to finish the bike along with a lot of help from Steady Garage, RC Scooters, S3 Steve, Brightside Khuong, DNR, Kellybuilt, and Ruckhouse. So far I've been through 2 motors, countless time on the side of the roads, a loss of hearing in my left ear, and a life threatening bike fire. I've gotten a lot of what, how, and why questions along the way. All I can say is, hate it or love it, I don't care it's my bike. Be on the lookout for some custom pieces to add to your Zuma this summer. Here's a glimpse of a never ending build in progress.

Very, very nice scoot. Maybe if I rode a modified/lowered Z, and it lost at least 90lbs, I'd think harder 'bout it, but the Ruck is where I'm at. Looking forward to what's next.

Never saw one in my life until SIII Steve brought his bike to my shop. After that it was game over. Do it!
