figure I've shaved off enough of my knuckles to post a build thread now.. huge thanks to the TR community, as I wouldn't have tried any of this without.
picked up the black 09 ruckus with 3 miles on it, 17 & change out the door. Rode it stock for a month or so while I haunted this very forum looking for inspiration, trying to figure out what, exactly, I wanted to do with the little beast.
here's the only pic I could find of the stock condition:
signal ear removal, new signals & horn relocation:
pegs.. not much to go wrong here:
bars, stem, speedo & indicator relocation:
shaved light rack reflector tabs, kijima clear lenses installed in BB. Open CVT:
brake tower removed, dingleberry & turtlehead installed, rear fender trimmed:
got a few months deep now, no turning back!! massive thanks to all the TR folks for all the insight, reviews, how-to's, and inspiration..
