Looking forward to final pics! FYI; you will need to purchase some electrical parts to make the T-Motorsports engine work in the Ruckus (starter relay, AC stator, etc.).

thats the plan. with some good tranny mods and intake and exahust and all the dumb shit and weight i have removed im hopeing to get this baby moving good! i cannot wait to test it. the pegs, seat, and bars were all mounted to give my short ass the perfect "comfortable" tuck for even less wind resistance. so we will see. the seating position is very comfotable tho i can tell you that much. cushiony seat, and the stock rear shocks and front forks it should rike like a caddy but also haul the mail pretty well!

thanks for the good words guys :highfive:

so fresh and so clean! I wish my gy6 had the muffler mounts likes yours does :cry: i'm going to have to get creative on how I mount my new muffler.

ps, if you want to trade my whole gy6 exhaust for that header pipe let me know. I had to order another header pipe because the one I already had doesn't clear the fan shroud :headbashing:

:porn: okay so had some time today to work on the bike a bit more! nasty weather in my area................ :( oh well.............

so sticking with the cafe look im going to be getting a single round motorcycle headlight to out on and i had gotten a nice brown leather toll bag awhile back so got that mounted up!

Image
Image
I like it :banger: cant wait to order the headlight in a couple weeks.

Then i had a lower spot on the downtube that i was going to mount the tool bag to but it was just a bit to big so.........
Image
Image
i took this piece of aluminum and drilled it and trimmed it to fit the above location.
Image
now it looks better and i can use this as a future mounting location for things...... :highfive:

Image
so after removing all the stock scoot seat lock parts i had to come up with something to secure the seat down. so i went to walmart hardware section :lol: and bout a lock flange. drilled it into seat and now it works perfect!
Image
so under the seat is DONE! :banger:

Image
how she sits as of now!

took sometime to clean up my brand new motor and remove the ugly stock plastic shrouds. blocks so much AIR flow to the AIR cooled motor with COOLING fins on the cylinder assembly.
Image
now it will run so much cooler and i think it looks SUPER TITS! :porn:

So thursday i am ordering my brake shoe kit for the rear so i can mount my wheel and then mount the motor!!! cant wait

please stay tuned! :banger:
