Thanks for the info John.

As for the Ruck stuff,Im hooked.There has been a Houston Ruck group for a good while now,im still new but im a fast learner.Im trying to get more of the heavy modding Ruckus scene here in town going.In cali its freaking huge just like their import carshow scene.

Here is more progress on my exhaust.

Got the frame and front wheel back from powdercoat.The yellow powder has a lot of pearlecent little sparkles in it.I will have to take some good pics in the sun to show it.

I definitely gotta put some black vinyl stickers of some sort on the floorboard to give it some contrast.

Now I gotta get the front tire mounted,finish polishing stuff,wire it up neatly.It was running in the pics but I got wires all over the place.Oh and I forgot to order my aftermarket tail light so I used the stock one for pics.

nice builds man....pimpin for sure....

question though...why all the pie angles and tig welding on the exhaust vs. just doing pipe bending? Pardon my stupidity as I have no experience bending pipe...I guess the 1 or 1.5" SS is too thin to bend?

Well I was against the idea because I like the stock 50cc motor BUT sometimes you just cant pass up deals.I ran into a brand new,still in the crate chinese scooter.These are very crappy quality scoots when it comes to their plastics,controls,etc.However they do use a common not too shabby 150cc engine that hauls .

I got this one for a great price so im gonna strip it of all the plastics and yank out the engine/harness and put it onto a Ruckus frame.Speeds should easily be 60mph in stock form and still be fully automatic.
