So I have some plans for the Ruck and thought I would go ahead and start a build thread. Feel free to comment good and bad. Let me know if you have any suggestions too.

Here is what I started with....it had a few mods so it was a nice jump start.

Image

Drink holder

Image


I immediately re-did the seat. It was really easy with a staple gun and some scissors. I also put on "saddle bags" which I keep taking on and off because I can't decide if I like them. The "saddle bags are actual Vietnam military ammo pouches.


Image

Image

Time for the stretch and Daytona shock.

Image


I broke the thing down and re painted the frame green and black.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I also trimmed down the plastic and re-attached it underneath the gas tank again. You have to trim the edges down otherwise it doesn't look right. If you do this, trace around the gas tank and cut accordingly. I was a little nervous riding with an open gas tank. I added a NCY gas tank cover and frame brace.

Image

Image

I hid the wires coming out of the battery box.

Image

Might as well add the cargo cover and clean it up a little. Here it is so far....

Image

Image


Let me know what you guys think. I plan on powder coating the front pegs soon and I am incorporating a new color shortly.....

looks good.. you should get some 50cal dummy rounds or spent shells and incorporate them somehow.. but so far looks good.. any pics of when you were cutting the plastic for under the gas tank.. im gonna do that this week.. mine is still broken down cause im adding a password extension..

Thanks Ramen...are you gonna ride with us this Saturday?

Thats a good I idea....I'll try and incorporate the dummy rounds into the build.

As far as the plastic, all you need to do is lay the bottom portion of the plastic (the part that protects the underneath) in it's normal position on the bike. Then lay the metal gas tank on the plastic and align all the holes as if you were re-assembling. Once this is done, trace around the tank with a sharpie so it makes a outline on the plastic.

Remove everything again and cut around the sharpie line with some heavy duty shears.

Wrench Day - I installed the KCP coolant tank, relocated the valve to the top of the carb and turned those silver pegs black.

What you guys think?

I dig the new kryptonite canister and those pegs look way better black. Hopefully we can get that thing going faster too next weekend! :banger:

D and I basically swam back from your place. :snorkel: Thanks again for the big ass allen wrench, looks like I may have that seat frame on next time.

Love what you did,man! Mine is very similar, Was thinking of making a mount for my Winchester defender 1300 shotgun with foldover stock @ extra ammo holder. "Battle scooter!" It's a perfect fit down the side of the rear frame. Or not. Great work!
