PostPosted: Tue Jan 21, 2014 12:05 am 
well...... my ruck is gone, but i gotta get back on the road.(and the ride game)
so i guess i'm gonna try to get my gy6 china scoot back running and legal.
it was running with everything working until about 9-10 months ago, when it went through a hail storm.
that broke the mirrors, instrument panel, left controls, tail light, as well as trashing the seat and body panels.
it still started and ran fine, but i could not drive it legally. it was taken off insurance, the tags expired
then i got my ruckus and it sat neglected ever since. :lol:

gotta get it started again first then it shouldn't be too much work to get it legal again.
besides its a photo of the week winner :wasted:
Image

but i'm never gonna find oem parts for it so it'll probably turn into some kind of skeleton build. :meh:

trying to figure out what type of seat i wanna use, seems pretty important for the feel and look.
i'm going to try to lower the seat and handlebars, so it doesn't feel too weird after riding a ruckus
also trying to figure out how much of the old brackets i can shave of the frame and what to leave for structural purposes.
should see the shit welds on this frame. :shock:
last time i got pulled over was on this bike going 67 in a 40 hahaha

I know you had one of my radiator covers on your stolen bike. I'll donate a custom part of your picking to this build, as long as it's something I can make. Let me know when you're ready and what you want.

thanks man, thats really polite! maybe if i get it running i'll snag a fan cover or something.
i don't really know what else i'd ask for because i really don't know what i'm doing with this thing.
it's quickly turning into a frankenstein bike.

moved all the electrics off the headlights so i can switch them out later.
built a ghetto mount for my gauges on the frame. trying to clean up the rats nest wiring on this thing
(yes i know this thing is really dirty and in my living room, my girlfriend has been reminding me)
Image

stripped more off the rear of the frame, i kinda like the shape of this tail piece.
Image

looks like a good place to put the tail light and blinkers. anyone know where to get some good amber bar end leds/blinkers?
the tubes are 1" inner diameter
Image
(sleepy cat was no help)

who needs a skid plate when you have this giant ridiculous center stand mount sticking 3" off the ground
this is one thing i want to remove but need to look at the structure of how it's welded a little better.
Image

until i lower the handlebar/change headlights, i think i'm gonna use some of the original body.
those headlights just stick out too far.
Image
Image
here you can see how my gauge mount is crooked, but i built it from frame scraps and it's probably temporary
still waiting on controls in the mail. (cat woke up, still no help)

Image
never was a huge red fan, i'm thinking black with white fenders. lol

i'm bidding on a seat on ebay, don't know if i wanna link it, don't want any competition i'm the only bidder. good price right now.
if i dont get that one though another option i was thinking was to lower the rear shock,
level off the rear frame and put a ruckus seat on it.
