UPDATED 11/1/11 ~ gAME FUCKiN oVER added to gallery below!!! SCROLL DOWN....
Welcome to our TotalRuckusTEAM RUCKSTERS Photo Gallery. This thread will be showcasing rPRO SCOOTERS in their completed and operational stages. The latter being the key word, because we all know nothing is ever complete in this gAME. Moreover, by our standards, a non-operational build is as good as nothing.
Presentation will be of past & present builds, mainly the Honda Ruckus, but others as well. Our mission is to be prolific & as versatile as we can, and keep innovating new platforms for the RUCKUS in all its totality. No doubt, the Ruckus provides the perfect & ideal medium for novice bike builders, and since the conception of gAME oVER, we have tried our best to use it with impunity. With no further to do, RUCKSTERS.com presents â€śExcerptsâ€ť from our TEAM RUCKSTERS rPRO SCOOTERS Photo Gallery, beginning with the one and only...........!!
This RAT ROD Custom Honda Ruckus 49cc started out as a weekend hobby and turned into what is now RUCKSTERS Customs. It features an rPRO paint job with custom flames on black, sporting the "original" gAME changing rPRO ONE-PIECE Frame, LINEX sprayed main frame & gas tank cover, custom chin bone, and Daytona 8-hole 12" wheels with white walls. This Honda Ruckus is loaded with JDM parts, and a hard twist of rPRO flavors. gAME oVER received a ton of attention everywhere it went, and it had the ability to captivate people's imagination without force. It is truly a timeless looking scooter. Overall build....turned out to be "legend" in some circles and is the foundation of our portfolio.
We have had fortunate success of positive feedback from the Ruckus community (aka http://www.totalruckus.com) for our work since the debut of gAME oVER in 2008. It gave us the opportunity to focus on building more custom bikes and essentially turning into a family business in 2009.
Our very first rPRO GY6 Custom Swap Kit. We were very much in the R&D stage at this point, and was still figuring out a whole lot of things. But with some help among the local community and great efforts, we managed to get this FATTY rolling on the streets of LOS ANGELES.

As many of you already know, UBCNME got into an accident last year no too long after he completed the first version of this collab project. But determined to get back on track, UBCNME boxed half his bike up and shipped it straight to Cali immediately after the aftermath, right back to the operating room here at RUCKSTERS.

Project "D" and Barely LEGAL are the first two Honda Ruckuses to be featured in HONDA TUNING MAGAZINE, June 2010 issue. This was a huge reward for us, and a great mile stone. Special thanks to RODREZ from Honda Tuning Magazine, Darryl from JHPUSA, and the ever growing RUCKUS COMMUNITY.......our efforts to be the best we can be cannot be without your support.
The primary focus of this project was to build the cleanest & sexiest looking Honda Ruckus alive. Our mission was not to WOW you by any means other than reducing the subject to its necessary elements. The basic ideas were to strip the work down to its most fundamental features, showing only the bare essentials, and avoiding the chaos of adding.
This project was a year in the making and not one surface was left untouched. Barely LEGAL has multiple one-off features and is essentially a two-tone color Ruckus with raw aluminum accents. It wears an rPRO Custom One-Piece Frame, rSPEC Ultra Wire Tuck, rPRO Matte Grey Paint Job, and flavored with rPRO Hard Parts & Accessories. Special features include matching 5-Star Off-Set Wheels, matching Dual Disc Master Cylinders, matching Heidenau K61 Tires, and matching Dual ITALIAN brake system with Brembo P32 Calipers & Braking Rotors. The main frame & gas tank cover are sprayed with LINEX, to create a rough edge and superior durability. But perhaps the most intricate and sexiest feature is the One-Off Custom BTX Seat Pan and Handcrafted Leather Upholstery, with two-tone laser stitched Pin Stripe artwork. Overall build........keep looking and perhaps you will notice that more is less and less is more.
~ The LV Project ~ TR Ride Of The Month, June 2010
A RUCKSTERS X BTX Collab. This was definitely an ambitious project. Both us and BTX worked over time in preparation of it's premiere @ Extreme Autofest in San Diego. Which was a hit indeed! The LV Project stole the show and stood out among all the other displayed bikes from our stable.
This "high profile" Ruckus features our first rPRO Custom One-Piece "Shortened" Rear Frame, and also features the rSPEC Wire Tuck, rPRO Custom Fatty Swap Kit with rPRO Engine Mount System & Hangers. BTX fabricated the Civic Lower-Rear Tie Bar CHIN BONE, Main Frame Front Cover, Front & Rear light brackets and the one-off Seat Pan. He also did the entire assembly of the project. Perhaps the most obvious feature is the Custom Handcrafted Upholstery with LV wrap by Victor. Overall build....."What's your level of pimpage...???"
This build was commissioned by a client from Pennsylvania. Since owning 2 Confederate Motorcycles, he was looking for something causal, something to go to the local convenience store on, without the hassle of fully gearing up. After seeing a Honda Ruckus passing by one day, he began surfing the internet for Ruckus companies alike, and found RUCKSTERS Customs. All it took was one phone call and that was it. After a whole year of phone & email conversations, he finally decided how he wanted his build to be. Simple, fast, and PINK. Moreover....to accommodate 2 people.
Mr. Pink features the first rPRO Custom "Extended" One-Piece Rear Seat Frame for his and her. Other special features include the rSPEC Ultra Wire Tuck, rPRO Pink with Gold Flakes Paint Job, rPRO Signature Series D-1 Kit, BTX Seat Pan, Custom Handcrafted Leather Upholstery, ATR Zuma 2-Stroke Engine Mount, and a Yamaha Big-Bore 70cc 2-Stroke motor. Overall build......Pink is the new HOTNESS!
Our very first ever, fully spec......all stealth black custom Ruckus. Fully loaded with rSPEC Ultra Wire Tuck, rPRO Custom One-Piece "Shortened" Rear Frame, rPRO Custom GY6 Fatty Engine Mount System for 10x7 rear wheel, rPRO Engine Hangers and an rPRO Matte Black Paint Job. It also features a BTX Custom Seat Pan and BTX Custom Header Pipe for the Yoshimura Cyclone Exhaust. The Custom Handcrafted ALL Leather Seat is nicely padded for extra comfort and is made of smooth bull hide and wrinkle bull hide. This bad boy is geared with rPRO Monster Drag Bars, rPRO Monster Kickers, Mr. Shorty Chin Bone, CNC Dual Master Cylinders, Dual Disc Brakes with ATR Rear Fatty Hub KIt, Mikuni TM28 Carb, Dr. Pulley Variator and the notorious INNOVA 225 Tire. Overall build...... in more ways than one, calling it "The Dark Knight" wouldn't be too far from the truth.

A prototype build indeed. This project has definitely set the tone for our future builds to come. Introducing the rPRO CORE AXIS Shock Mount, rPRO Chin Bone, rPRO Rear Disc Brake Hub with Brembo P32 Caliper in the rear & front, along with matching BRAKING rotors for both front & rear wheel. Stopping on a dime has never been so easy. Also adding some more custom flavor is the integrated Turtlehead rear light unit inside the handcrafted shark skin seat.

Other special features include the Yoshimura TRI Dual Tip Carbon Fiber Exhaust (BTX Shortened) and the BTX Custom 180cc header pipe, matching 5-Star wheels with added Gojin washers and Wrench Werks mini cross/stress bar. Wrench Werks did a superb job on the assembly, the tucking of the rear brake line (Super Ultra Wire Tuck), and all the other tiny details only the naked eye can see. Most of all, the Lo-Pro Maxxis tires added a ton of taste to this exotic looking bike.
NIKKA premiered at the SPOCOM SHOW in Honolulu 2010, along with all the other sick ass Honolulu builds. We're very sure the RUCKUS class stole some of the spot light at this major import car event. Overall build.....for all the haters out there....NIKKA PLEASE!!!
So we get a call one day from a fellow in Marylandâ€¦.asking us about a custom project heâ€™d like to commission for the East Meets West Ride, hosted by his truly. As usual, our time was pinched, not only with building, but also doing shows & rides locally & beyond. One must think, â€śa chance to showcase one of our own at an East Coast RUCKUS meet doesnâ€™t come often, if ever.â€ť The Maryland Project aka â€śShop Affiliatedâ€ť was soon in the making.
The two tone Beige & Black sets the mood just right, giving it a refine flavor. One of the center pieces of this ride is the all leather rPRO handcrafted upholstery and the other is our most branded signature, the rPRO One-Piece Custom Frame on which the handmade BTX Seat Pan is mounted on. Other rPRO features & parts includes our GY6 Custom Engine Mount System, 12x7 5-Star Fatty Rear Wheel, Custom Rear Disc Brake HUB, Monster Drag Bars, D1 Kit and Custom Paint Job. Other key features include perfectly matched 5-Star Wheel Set, Brembo P32 Front/Rear Brake System rolling with rPRO Front & Rear Hubs. Not to mention the rSPEC Ultra Wire tuck streamlines the custom form to a T, and the matching Heidenau K61 tires balances out the rest of the look. Overall buildâ€¦..â€ťShop Affiliatedâ€ť is the only one of its kind in Maryland. NUF SAID!
This build needs no introduction in terms of theme and inspiration. Mos def one of the funnest projects in our books, b/c it was easy to grasp the direction of where things were going....and that is sometimes half the battle.
The making of this project marks the first time we incorporated an ATR Fatty Mount with our staple rPRO One-Piece Frame, and the result was totally cool, esp. combined with our rSPEC Ultra Wire Tuck. It also was the first time we got to properly use our purple anodized rPRO D1 Kit, it was the perfect occasion. Don't let all the purple bling fool you though, this bike is all show all go from front to back. The GY6 180cc big bore engine with high performance upgrades keeps this sucker at a steady 70mph, and the Heidenau K61 tires were design to keep a rider grounded. Not to mention the dual disc brake system offers more control and stopping power at high speed. Other mods & parts include rPRO Custom Mix "LAKERS" yellow Paint Job, rPRO Custom Chin Bone, rPRO Monster Kickers, Composimo Anklebiter, CNC Dual Master Cylinders, Hurricane Z-Bars, Trailtech HID Headlight and more. Overall build.....this Ruckus eats, sleep & shit LAKERS all day and everyday, whether in or out or out & about.
A stylish 1-tone build with all the high end amenities. Our client mos def wanted something very simple & not so flashy, however, at the same time was willing to go the distance with an all stealth look. Some of its main features include the ATR Fatty Engine Mount, Matching 8-Hole wheels with Daytona front & rPRO rear and the custom mix rPRO Paint Job. Of course the most subtle features are the rPRO shortened rear frame, shortened seat frame and the rSPEC Wire Tuck. Engine work includes a 180cc Big Bore, Ported, Polished, Milled head, Yoshimura Exhaust and Mikuni TM32 Carburetor. Other hard parts include rPRO Monster Drag Bars, rPRO Monster Kickers, BTX Billet Grips, CNC Dual Master Cylinders for dual disc brakes, Heidenau Tires, Trailtech LED Headlight, Bride Seat, Linex Main Frame and more. Overall build.....simple but not easy.
Commissioned by a client whom we got to meet in Seattle at the CONFERENCE OF NOISE RUCKUS CON 2009. A complete rPRO Scooter with all the amenities a player would want. Special features include our GY6 Fatty Engine Mount System, rPRO One-Piece "Shortened" Seat/Rear Frame, rPRO Front & Rear Hubs with matching Brembo P32 Calipers & Braking 190mm Rotors, rSPEC Wire Tuck and rPRO Lime Green Paint Job. Of course having dual disc brakes is a must and matching CNC Dual Master Cylinders to go with the 5-Star Wheel Set brings the whole bike together. The Seattle Project went the whole 9 yards and for the first time ever......we used the Grip Ace controls on a BTX Billet Grip. Giving the rider full access of his start button, turn signals, high/low beam and horn right at the tips of his fingers. Overall build.....it's mean, it's green, and it's rPRO CLEAN!!!!
PICCOLO made its premiere at the 2010 Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Seattle at the Sound Rider booth. Representing the only one of its kind at this mega 2-wheeled event. Let it be known....a fully built custom Ruckus is a bike not to be reckon with.
Closing out 2010 with RustyRiot's "VENOM"....This project has been in the making for quite some time. It's been many moons of tinkering, waiting, fabbing and more waiting for all the pieces to come together. Nevertheless, here it is for everyone to see.
This flat black beauty sports a 180cc GY6 Engine with upgraded performance internals, mounted with the notorious ATR Fatty Engine Kit. Rolling on rPRO 12x7 Fatty 5-Star Rear Wheel and 12" Daytona 5-Star Front Wheel.

This is the final revision of our previous RIPPLE. The owner dropped off V1 about 10 months b/c his bike wasn't starting. After going back & forth and seeing all the new builds we were coming out with, he started to feel a bit left behind. Finally gave in and said lets do this shit right once and for all.
The most unique features on this bike is the rPRO "DOVE TAIL" One-Piece Seat Frame and hand sculpted front head light bracket with flames. Sculpted by the owner himself. Check out his website http://www.sculpster.com, this guy has mad ass skills. Anyway, back to the build. It also features full on Italian brake system with dual Brembo P32 Calipers & Braking Rotors, paired with rPRO Front & Rear Hubs, rPRO GY6 Fatty Engine Mount System, rSPEC Ultra Wire Tuck, rPRO Paint Job, rPRO 12X7 5-Spoke rear wheel and Daytona 10" 5-Spoke front wheel.

Overall build....lets just say the owner is one happy dude.
This guy comes in right before Super Sunday 2010 and wanted a quick n' easy swap kit. So we hooked him up with a Killer Scooter kit and he got to ride on SS 2010. Soon after that, he came around the shop pretty often and started helping us out here & there. By the following SS 2011, he was working full time here @ RUCKSTERS. So we had to hook him up with a nice ride to rep.
This is the first project we built with a Killer Scooter mount & rSPEC Wire Tuck together. Laying a foundation for future builds to come. The color scheme is Sriracha HOT and the max speed pushes over 70mph. It features an rPRO Paint Job on NEON ORANGE powder coated wheels, ATR Front Disc Brake Kit, Killer Scooter GY6 wheels, Heidenau Tires, gAME oVER's original carbon fiber seat wrap, rPRO Monster Drag Bars Reverse plate, CNC Perch Lever & Master Cylinder and rPRO Navi mount. Overall build....VERY LOUD...!!!!

After buying his used Ruckus from TR member Hooked, the owner of this black beauty couldn't wait to get it over to Rucksters. Quicker than a candle in the wind, it was tore down and ready for a new look within a day. Couple of weeks later, it was assembled and road ready just in time for Super Sunday 2011.
The theme is pretty straight forward, black on chrome. GY6 150cc engine mounted to the infamous Killer Kit, and a new gloss black paint job. Outfitted with rPRO billet parts, KN Kikaku Low Down forks with Brembo P32 Caliper & Braking Rotor, a custom seat wrap with "R" logo stitched, Trailtech HID headlights, CNC lever set and sleek Devil's Exhaust with BTX custom header. Special features by Audio Innovations include a custom gas tank cover molded to fit the APPLE iPAD, custom plexiglass boom box and custom LED light FX. Overall build.....like the owner said "I'm Mexican, we pay the chrome bill before the phone bill."
Our customer from Chicago came to visit us a few months back, since he was in LA for a business trip. After spending about 30 minutes in our shop, he says to us "I want something like this"....pointing @ "SPECIAL OPS." Then he said, "but I want it with a black & white color scheme." Fortunate for us, this guy new exactly what he wanted and that made our job much easier.
This build was quite familiar as we modeled it after our mobbed out black SPECIAL OPS Project. Sporting our in house rPRO custom GY6 engine mount system, rSPEC Wire Tuck, rPRO Matte White Paint Job, and loaded with our fully built GY6 180cc Engine. The matte white goes well with all the flat black rPRO hard parts: Monster Drag Bars, Monster Chin Bone & Monster Kickers. Rolling on Double 6-Spoke matching wheel, with the infamous INNOVA 225 wide rear tire and Dunlop TT92 front tire. Custom Yoshimura Zuma 125 Carbon Fiber exhaust and BTX custom 180cc header pipe is matched up with a Mikuni TM28 Carburetor & Dr. Pulley Variator & Slider Weights. Overall build.....this white beast will mos def be ripping titties off in the windy city.

Hands down, the most ambitious build to come out of our stable. A culmination of all our techniques, artistic creations, and vision since DAY ONE. GFO is no ordinary story, it is the origin of everything that has made RUCKSTERS possible, and is the "HOW" to why we started our company. For the last 2 years, we've been waiting for this moment to come and we're sure you have been too. Some how & some way, we managed to meet our deadline without a minute to spare. After months & months of preparation, and over 250 hours of work......with no further to do, we present to you GFO!!
This build wreaks of custom mods & fabrication. A custom Ruckus at its finest and a style that is unmatched. One-off parts makes up the majority of the build, including the engine mount, handcrafted rear frame, springer seat mount, wheels, triple tree, chin bone and much more. The matching drag racing wheels compliment the essence of its style & features. Perhaps the most obvious center pieces are the Garrett Turbo & the hand tooled leather seat. But the most noticeable attraction that the naked eye can see is the HOT ROD Theme. A blend of Japanese & American flavors all rolled into one tricked out Ruckus, a complete rPRO Scooter if you will. Overall build.....it's a TIMELESS MASTERPIECE!!!
