So got one of my new projects for this year!

my buddy was selling his metruck project. so i bought it. it was originally a red/white first year production 2002 metro. now its still a full 2002 metro front section but with a 2012 ruckus rear section.

i got big plans for this thing and as you can see from some of the pics further down i am doing a complete teardown for a full in depth cleaning and then reassemble with a BUNCH of new parts! cannot wait to GET this thing goin. its gonna be awsome!!! :banger: :banger:

then time for disassembly! :twisted:

Image

Image
bout ready to seperate the motor from the frame then seperate the frames for some mods and complete cleaning.

oh BTW LOVE that poon rear shock! nice stuff. and that bride seat cover and of course the fatty! :highfive:

Soooooooo two of my most favorite parts that i will be putting on this build arrived last week........

Image
Thanks to rucking ronk for the sticker and the DOPE ass ice tube!

and prolly my MOST favorite part that i will be puttin on this build is a handmade one-of-a-kind radaitor cover/scoop thingy lol. that was made by a fellow tr member from new zealand! his screen name is Maozer. Thanks a MIL man you did a fantastic job :highfive: :highfive:

Image
check out that hand done craftsmanship. every tube is FULLY functional :banger:

Image
Plenty of air flow!

thanks chris! im sure something will come up lol.

and ronk i will try to keep this updated as much as possible.

thanks for the support guys!

just a word update for tonight. worked on it for about 2 1/2 hours tonight. got the engine seperated from the frame. mount off the frame. front and rear frames seperated. removed some uneeded plastic and other stuff. taking the front fender to work tommaorw to fully hand sand it down. had some chips and runs from a previous spray job. so gonna spray it flat black to match the front flat black metro wheels and and rigid stock front met forks. also flat black. should contrast nice against the dark gloss black of the rest of the bike.

took the met stem out and scotch brite the shit outta it cuz it was pretty rusty (11 years old) and then sprayed it flat black and reassembled with lots of new grease for smooooooth turning :lol:

also removed the gas tank. its in sad shape. taking it to work also gonna fully scotch brite it and then clean it out completley to make it ALMOST like brand new again. ill post some pics of the current situation with everything wednesday. tank will be totally done by then and fender will be totally sanded by then. painting the fender this weekend.

got a list of OE parts i need to order new from honda that are either in real bad shape or broken on this bike. so lots to do still. but im enjoying every moment of it!!!! :highfive:

thanks for following guys. pics wednesday night. late wednesday night. cuz ill be up late working on it some more then posting the pics 8)
