Here is the picture journey of my obsession which is the the ruckus. It started out as a way to save a few bucks on gas, and now is all about style and being different. 8)

My first mod, a BSS Chrome Shock to keep my fat ass from bottoming out all the time!!!

and The 45/45 watt headlight bulbs for better vision at nite!!

Then i started finding all the little "no cost" mods that i could do right in my own garage!! Started out with the simplest, Horn relocation.
Image

That lead to more mods like Signal relocation.
Image

And finally the Ducktail removal from the rear fender.

Finally i got brave enough to tackle something bigger..... a Polini variator.
Image

It really wasn't that tough to do with a little help from the guys on the forum!! My questions were answered and i had finished the install with no problems!!

Needless to say by now i was completely hooked on my ruckus and couldn't wait to buy some goodies to trick it out a little!!

The first custom mod i got was a set of Pro grips from the local motorsports shop in town.
Image

Next thing i got bought was a NCY Footrest with pegs, Tank cover, and Cargo board..... Changed the whole look of the scooter.
Image

Image

After that my addiction to the ruckus was totally out of control, i had no other choice in the matter...... Must mod scooter!!!

it looked so much more cool now, but yet it was too short..... Idea!!! make it longer!!! So i ordered the Kijima extended wheelbase kit and started to make it longer!!!
Image

Image

While doing that i happened upon a NCY super low seat frame for sale and figured might as well make it "low and long" since i'm doing it!!!
Image

Now after this is were it all starts to get a little blurry..... internet, paypal, and a large bottle of Mt. Dew!!!

what paint did you use to paint the middle frame and how good is it at staying on the frame?

Way to go Stimpy! Goood thing you got a heater in that space. Otherwise you'd be waiting til spring to do all them mods. Cedar rapids, yea. Isn't there a place called Gabe's oasis out there. I do believe I played there once or twice back in the day with the Hollowmen and House of large sizes. Two of the greatest bands ever from Iowa.
