Japan is full of Ruckus,well its called Zoomer there.Just dont buy any there cause you wont be able to bring them back.They dont use VINS on their models over there.

Thanks for the info man



We will be in Okinawa for 3-4 years so I'm sure well just ride the outta them while we are there then sell em before we leave...I've always liked them but when I saw your orriginal thread on HI it really put the possibilities into perspective. I always thought you could just do the basic mods, but nothing like what your doing...awesome work man, serious props

Looks sweet.
Passed a group of 3 rucks on hwy-249 between Tomball and Magnolia yesterday.
They were burning up the pavement. Had to be doing all of 45 mph in a full tuck. lol.

I miss mine.
Had the best times ripping through the neighborhood.

Cool stuff. I love my Zuma 50 / 70, but it's no where near as customizable as a ruck. Nice project!

Your 2 stroke is pretty fast for a scooter though once you do the big bore 70cc kit.Im looking for a donor scooter right now with a vertical engine similar to the Ruckus so I can do a swap.Just need to wait for someone to wreck their 500cc silverwing.

Im thinking I should just talk to a CNC machine shop about making me an order of hubs.Anyone on here have a source? Basically something like this

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/rear-...Q5fAccessories

except I would just want holes instead of threaded holes so I can do a multi pattern setup.
