EDIT: and sadly, this guy is being sold :cry: my wife and I are moving and it would be easier on us and our wallets if we sold it. I HATE to sell it but its not as high on the priority list as other things. Here she is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330683923092

if she doesn't sell it won't make me sad at ALL, but it WOULD make things a little easier, financially and move wise.

/EDIT

Well I finally have enough parts to officially start a build thread. I've started this with build with a donor GY6 bike and have started to acquire all the parts, from members on the board(mostly used and abused parts), I need to make a ruckus around it. So far, here are the parts I've acquired:

And here is a shot of the "new-to-me" parts next to the recovery ruck with a peek of the donor bike in the background:
Image

And here is the donor. It was a 2011 TaoTao that some kid had layed down. The bike still starts up in the current state. If it had a front wheel i could rock it the way it is lol:
Image

More parts are in the mail so I'll update as things come in.

And this explains why I've had so many WTB ads in the past month or so.

The following list will get updated as parts roll in.

Thanks to:
ubuntu for the front frame, triple tree, gas tank and seat
chinaman for the seat mounting hardware - another front wheel, brake hub, axle and axle spacer, front fender
acushman for the front wheel with brake, shocks, speedo, handlebar, and controls with all of those wire
candaddy for the motor mount
saisanith74 for the battery cage and front and rear battery box
ARunto for the triple tree hardware
eloke for the motor mount bump stop
darrylsawyer1989 rear frame
minkus gas tank cover, luggage pan, and air scoop
local guy (can't remember his name, Josh?) new front tire and new front shocks
and ebay for the kick stand and fuel pump

If i forgot anyone let me know, ive recieved alot of parts from all of you for this build! And really appreciate it! :highfive:

cliff notes:
Here is where it stands so far. not all parts installed but here it is alive and well.

Image

And here she is all finished.... minus a coat of paint on the seat frame and rear frame. Just changed the gear and engine oil and she is beastly! only other part thats going on is a rear fender which should be here in the next day or 2. (more pics on page 5)

Some Videos!

Video with new exhaust:

And a walk around video:
Image

Some how my my wife talked her mom into riding on the back. This thing hauls even with 2 people on board!
Image

A quick burnout just for fun!

This is what all came off of it, incase someone wants some random part from it.

With the stock seat just sitting on it for reference.

Next on the list.... wiring. Shouldn't be too bad. I have the donor harness and i've labeled everything so that should make things a bit easier.

well i'm not sure what color it will be when its all done. i'm wanting to get it all together and running before i start messing with colors and such. that way i don't scratch it all up in the process. but for some reason i had an odd thought of zebra stripes the other day.... :ninja3
