My name is Bernie. I'm in Moorpark and work in Newbury. I am actually looking for a Ruckus as we speak. Hopefully I find a nice used one in the next few weeks.
I am selling a few set of wheels, as soon as I get a set sold. I'll have enough funds to pick one up.
Are there any local shops who sell aftermarket parts for Rucks? I wanna pick someones brain before picking one up.
Hey! I actually live in Newbury Park (work at Amgen) but say Thousand Oaks because, well, pretty much the same thing right? And people have actually heard of TO.
For shops, depends on what you're looking for in terms of aftermarket. Things like Ruckus-specific frame parts like a seat frame, footrest, tank cover etc you won't find in any local shops. Stuff like handle bars, belts, rollers, air filters, tires (more universal parts) can be found or special ordered locally. High Octane Powersports in TO is a great place, and the owner was really curious about the Ruckus last I was in there... doesn't stock a lot of scooter parts but he is more than willing to order anything he can.
And the Honda Powersports dealer in TO went under last spring/summer
so the nearest one of those is in Simi now.
All the LA-area Ruckus suppliers (like Rucksters, Standard Functions, BOWLS) are close enough to where when I order something it usually shows up the next day... if I put in the order in the morning so they can ship it same-day. So that's pretty ideal.
Best of luck with the Ruckus search! I hope you join our ranks shortly!
