Ruck Front end swap COMPLETE! :banger: Check out spreenet for the full swap details, too much info and photos.

Front End Teaser:
Working on the Ruck front fender. Thinking of trimming to fit, flipping & floating.

Working on the motor mount:

Image

Just have to cut the bumper neck down so the engine sits closer to level and get the rear suspension swapped.

Designed my shock relocator mount (Thank you SSS for the inspiration :idea: ) Getting cut out on the burn table this weekend.
Going to design my frame stiffener but not sure if i want to do a gusset underneath like SSS has, or do a chin bone.... Or Both.
Ordered my Malossi RS3 Offset Shock from SSS today, can't wait for that piece!

i suggest both the gusset and frame brace. you can really feel the front of the bike move without a brace. i can sit on the bike pulling the handlebars and i can get the front end to move. NOT solid

Yea dude I think i'm leaning towards both. You know, I noticed when I was mocking this thing up that I have a built in 2" stretch kit lol. Just move the motor back to the holes where the center stand was. Of course i'm planning on stiffening this area a little more too, but it's there if I need it haha!

Hey buddy, your motor is a non variated type, they arent good for much power.

You need 30, 28 x2, you use the spree stuff for the rest. you will have to either cut down the stem of the tree or cut the handle bars down to keep the stock setup. or you run drag type bars

first time i built a spree i chopped the tree neck, took about 3 1/2 inches out. sleeved it and rewelded it. i ran drag bars but i could have used the stock bars.

this time i had this spacer sleeve deal made up to make up the gap.

It is a Malossi RS24 Offset Shock. ScooterSwapShop is out of the RS24 but still has the RS3's in stock. (I guess the 24's were mostly used for track and the 3's for street). I have to measure eye to eye and will let you know but its the same length as the 94-01 Elites.

Thanks! Found the measurement on SSS. I think that RS3 is exactly what I'm looking for.

Yea dude it's a pimp ass shock. I have to run it because of the wide Ruck wheel and 90/90 tire i'm running.

Just waiting on my buddy to bring my damn welding machine back so i can get the shock tab welded on and the motor mount welded too :headbashing:

Update: Finally got to lay some beads down and made good progress. My little 110 squirt gun gets the job done (with the exception of cold starts). Just have to hit it with some spray and start wrenching.
