PostPosted: Wed Apr 27, 2011 6:36 pm 
This is my scoot. It was originally named the Faggio, a cue taken from the awesome video game series, Grand Theft Auto. It Started out as a 2005 Metropolitan, now it's more of an 08/09 Ruckus :D as it has continued to grow and progress it has now more aptly known as "The People's Champ." Couldn't have won without everyone's support and I'm proud of the progress made and the following it's gained. Check back for more :highfive:

I'm gonna repurpose this post to share the info for metro to ruckus conversion:

Here's what it ended up costing me to convert for those of you who are curious!
Seat Frame-------Apr 20, 2011--32---yellow
09 GET Motor-----Apr 20, 2011--200--rear wheel/ruck swing arm
Battery Box-------Apr 22, 2011--45---red
Headlights/Bracket-Apr 24, 2011--70
Battery Shell------Apr 28, 2011--34---bought bolts/screws also
Rear Frame-------May 6, 2011--111---red frame/misc. bolts
Seat-------------May 26, 2011-70---clamps & motor mount bolt
ECU/Harness------May 28, 2011-55---traded for side skirts
ECU Mount/Lines---Jun 5, 2011--83---various bolts/resistors/relays & brake lines

SUB-TOTAL: 700 - metro stuff for sale (I haven't sold anything past the front frame yet, already made 140)

CONVERSION PROCESS
Front End Swap
Headlights
Rear End
Removed Speedo
Rear End Swap/Wiring

All in all, it's definitely possible (and not nearly as expensive as some make it out to be). and it's been a good learning experience getting the cooter-scooter thus far. Now to make it sexy :D

I don't "hate" them. Not really fond of them either. My Met started out the same colors as your minus the flames. But hey, if it would make you feel better, ok, I hate your flames. I am curious though, what part of the Met will be left when your done? Everything (other than the bare front frame and brakes I think) is different between the two.

I guess as long as he got it for less than about 400 it was a good deal, at least thats what ive seen the front frames going for on here.. He could also sell off all the stock met parts and make some money back.. either way it should be a fun build! The flames look like shit... :highfive:

The ruck and met tripple tree are different sizes, the ruck one is wider. Some of the ruck guys run the met ones, so you might be able to trade yours for a ruck one if you plan on running a ruck front wheel and brake setup.

because the met front end is the same demensions as a dio, so a complete dio front will bolt right up to a met triple tree

and the met harness will be worthless for what you are doing, along with the met ecu. just a FYI
