Ty-Dean Customs Illusion Blue Ruck Build

Earlier this winter we picked up a 2009 Ruckus.
The day we brought it home.

We are in the process of a complete tear-down. It will soon be powder coated/painted illusion blue and satin black.
Image


Painted the battery box with Krylon Fusion satin black. Very pleased with how it turned out.
Image

Here is a sample of the illusion blue powder coat.

Our inspiration for the color choice.....our Jeep Wrangler:

Started to mock up the exhaust today.

I ordered a BrandonRyan exhaust header and found a SuperTrapp muffler in my parts pile from an
old mini bike project. It screwed right into the BrandonRyan header perfectly. You can add or remove diffuser plates to adjust the sound level.

Still need to weld and paint but here's the mock up.
