Sometime after the 4th we will start putting my friends now black ruck back together with its 12in strech, new wheels, front disc and all of those other little goodies he's been collecting for nearly a year.

Also I have to finish my headlight cable extension on mine. But for now I'm enjoying some 4th of July weekend fun with the kiddos and family.
:D

Ok, so maybe I had some downtime today.

Got the headlight cable finished up.

Just to clear up any confusion here. I work on my ruck and several other rucks belonging to my friends. I'm no professional, just like helping friends and of course tinkering with just about anything. And I'm fairly ADD so I will probably be jumping between several bikes on this thread. Also I'm very open to any suggestions and tips any of you have for me along the way.

So the ruck we are giving a black Summer Quickie and tons of other stuff happening to right now looked like this a few weeks ago. Had different bars at the Crawl, but other than that, this is the best "Before " picture of the currently unnamed ruck that is gutted in my garage.

Thanks man!

Today we did some wire hiding tricks.

What wires? We don't need no stinking wires.

I do have to say that hiding and cleaning up the wires is probably the most tedious thing I've done to a ruck yet. Lots of cutting and extending wires, adding new connectors to consolidate the mess of factory connectors and so on. This may take longer than any other part of this build. lol. But it will look so clean. I'm jealous of his bike now. I know what I'm doing to mine this winter. lol

Yeah we were going to wait on the wire tuck until this winter when he gets it properly powdercoated, because I don't know how well this Summer Quickie paint job will last. But we decided that since it's supposed to rain for the next week and we already had it this far apart why not go ahead and figure the wire tuck out now. I'm not regretting it, but I've been given a deadline of the 13th, by my girlfriend, to have this back on its wheels. So I can put away all my tools and tables so we can get it ready for my daughter's birthday party......so I'm not sweating yet, but I also can't slack too much. lol

Did you see where we slipped in the CDI? 8)

Drill the holes for the tuck before you powder coat.

That's it right there at the bottom right? Don't have issues closing the box at all? That neck on the bars I am sure helps a tone with the box, my pswdjdm handlebar clamp is a pain to get my box on and off especially with my speedo in the box

Yep directly under that unit that says 2342. It tucked there nicely and believe it or not the battery box pops on easier than ever with the wires this way. And yes, the rucksters bars not only look sexy, are comfortable as shit, but yes they make battery box install and wire clearances so much better. I have the same ones and love them
