Well its still up in the air but around $1500 when i get the new ignition and kick stand installed. Itll go up if i get a lowered seat frame and paint it. Or if he wants it painted a certain way i can paint it the way he wants but of course itll cost a little extra.

If i get it the way I want it itll be quite a bit more. But its a good solid bike to start customizing the way you want to your personal taste.

Thanks man! My littlebsister in law got a kick out of the newspaper packaging the frame came in. I think she hung them up on her wall lol.

So i just went out for a quick spin (26 degrees brrrrr) and its QUICK! The speedo hit the temp light within one block with time for me to stop at the stop sign. I cant wait for it to warm up some more to get some gps speeds. Hell, i may keep this one and sell my stock ruckus.

Oh, and i forgot i ordered a new exhaust for it to. It should make it look better and maybe run better :mrgreen:

Made a little progress.

New ignition and blanks for the indicator lights.
Image

And remounted the front turn signals
Image

And of course the voltage regulator took a dump on me and burned out my tail lights so i have to wait for those to come in before i go ride it again.

And i still have a couple more parts in the mail.... again

Ill try to get some better shots in the morning when i have some light.

Heres a better shot thanks to the sun :snow

Image

and a better shot of the battery box and ignition. It isn't a ruckus ignition, as if you couldn't already tell. Since I uses ONLY the gy6 harness i found this small ignition with 4 plugs and it doesn't screw into anything, its just a push-through design with clips to hold it in place. thats why i had to make my own ignition cover. only difference is this doesn't have the wheel lock, but other than that, it works great! I just wish I would have painted the cover before I installed it all :headbashing:

Image

oh, and everything on it works! well, except for the kill switch on the handle bar... kind of. if it is "off" the engine will not start but if the engine is running, it won't kill the motor. actually, now that i type this it sounds like i have a couple wires mixed. :headbashing: these late night, after work, after the kids go to sleep sessions start to take their toll on ones mind.

As long as the regulator gets here tomorrow then you can feel the par! Do you have an extra regulator to bring down just in case its not here yet? You can have it back, its just so you can ride it
