Finally get to start a build thread, cause I have finally started to build. So far I have done a turtlehead taillight, dingleberry license plate holder, and I just got my handlebars today and waiting for my thingy that connects the handlebars to the tripletree? I think its called.

I'm looking for some bmx pegs hope to find red ones most look pinkish and pink won't go with my build plans. My further down the road plans are a stretch 6.5 inches lowered seat frame new suspension and disc brakes up front. I'm not sure if I want to lower it because my city's streets are horrible and I don't want to destroy my scooter by hitting a manhole cover. I'd love to get led lights for the visibility and night driving. I was looking at rigid led lights they are expensive but I've heard good things about them, does anyone know if they make round lights that could replace the stock, I like the double headlight look on the ruckus.

Off to a good start! Rigid does not make round lights, however, that doesn't mean they don't exist. Look up member fatbagz (pretty sure) and check out the lights he has on his bike :highfive:

I remember seeing one that had 2 rigid or cree square headlights I liked the look of it but just wished they were round. I guess I could make something to fill in the gaps on the headlight bracket.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.
No they were square on the one I'm thinking of. I'm still looking for it too many threads to search thru. But that's what I'm wanting to make it look like

Ok so the paint on on the pegs I got is already wearing off. They were $15 is powder coating more durable or something else?

I have two sets of drowsports pegs, will have three once I GET my rearsets on. If I didn't buy drow before mnnthbx came out with his, I'd go with them. Maybe
