Greetings. I recently finished up my 171cc frame up build and I'm pretty happy with the results. Although I didn't post my progress along the way it's only proper that I share my bike with my Ruckus brothers and sisters here on Total Ruckus. Here's my list of mods followed by some pics...I'm sure I'll land up forgetting something:

- Dorbyworks 171cc GY6
- Dorbyworks staggered Super Mesh wheels with white powder coat, 13x8 rear, 12x4 front
- Dorbyworks front AND rear disc brakes and calipers
- Dorbyworks forks
- Dorbyworks ankle biter
- Braided lines
- Brembo front and rear master cylinders and brake levers
- Michelin rubber
- GP exhaust
- BAN JING performance clutch bell
- NCY variator
- NCY gas tank cover
- 13g rollers
- ComposiMo fatty mount
- Mountain bike bars
- Bar end mirrors
- ATR low down rear shock
- Muteki SR48 series "burned blue" lug nuts
- Password JDM carbon fiber frame splitter
- Password JDM carbon fiber frame cover
- Password JDM mid pegs
- Password JDM axel spool
- Password JDM hardware
- MNNTHBX DORF seat frame
- MNNTHBX turtle head LED taillight
- Makoa harness
- LED signals front and rear
- LED headlight bar
- FLP kickstand
- FLP front frame cover
- White powder coated front and rear frame, seat rails, shock spring, bars, ankle biter, clutch bell, variator, ect.

Here are a few visuals:

All buttoned up:

Overall the bike came out pretty damn clean and is a TON of fun to ride. I wasn't planing on calling the bike "THE STORMTROOPER" until I really took a look at it completed. The mods never seem to end as everyday I come up with something I either want to upgrade or change but I guess thats part of the fun of building your own Ruck...and of course I went WAY over budget. I don't even wanna think about how much I spent building this thing. Now it's time to figure out how to make it go FASTER as I'm tired of my pal with the red and carbon bike on the right always pulling away from me around 60mph but I have a strong inclination that that narrow 13x4 rear wheel is working in his favor:

Cheers!

Thanks Ryu! White looks AWESOME when it's clean but KEEPING it clean can be a bit of a chore! Here's another pic for good measure:
