Moved down from first post:

So for the past year or so I have been collecting parts that I thought were good deals and eventually I looked around and thought dang I could build a whole scoot with these (minus the smalls of course) so one day saw a met for a good price went out to rockwall and picked it up.

Low a behold I have a metruck build thread

Night one was breaking it all down
(Not what I was expecting coming from a ruck... I mean come on plastic screws!?)

Image

Ending the night with it broke apart... And hope my dreams come true with this beaut.

ok so today was a total set back. got frustrated and the things started to go south... went to the old ruck engine to steal the clutch and noticed that the bell nut was a lil rounded towards the front so i stayed more to the back... or so i thought when i got the clutch off the nut stayed in my socket :headbashing: after an hour of hammering and prying dremeling and no luck i got crazy. took a drill to it long story short the nut won and i have to buy a new drill bit and socket...
Image
Image
then i went to the other end and started to replace the brake and throttle cables... got the rear brake line on after a while of stripping the top of the screw and then noticed the 10mm nut i could of taken off... only to realize it is about 5-8 inch to short once routed thru the plastic locations (and yes i am running plastics cause i think they look clean and tidy) mojo says like 83 with lowered bars and I'm running stock bars so i think a few more inches for that.
Image

Then went to do the throttle and front brake and went to take off the whole right side control and now i am totally in a big hole. I don't even know how to take those screws off since the weather and HEMAN got to them before me. but i think it will be long enough after i measured it.
Image

so to take out some anger i went and bought a angle grinder and went to town on my newly stripped seat frame... first side was pretty bad (never used one before) second side got a lil better... not to bad of a learning curve i guess.. Def a good stress relief to see sparks fly though! :lol:

Angle grinder + flap disc + beer + bud = meditative success

I'm glad your doing a good build. What are your plans for electronics?

Thank you sir! I am planning on putting some tunes on there somehow. Of course the led tail lights probably some led accent lights.

ok so as far as the stripped screws go i tried to dremel them and retry and stripped more... i have tried to dremel a flathead and it stripped more... has anyone tried that speed out or any on of the screw extractors to get these out? i am worried that i will drill the head off and then really be screwed and have to go and drill the whole thing out and retap it... don't want to do that

If you can cut just the heads cut off, the controls should slide apart enough to separate, then you can use a vise or vise-grip pliers on the shaft.

In the future, take the bars off the stem so you can get to the screw from the top with more leverage, and always use a brand new #2 bit- or one of those fancy Japanese bike bits- forget what they're called.

Mike155 sells a replacement bolt set with Allen heads, FYI.

Good luck!
