Im already working on a Honda Metro wide wheel kit but thats prob it for that one.Im open to anything really just been staying busy with Rucks.Hopefully after this build I will be more recognized.Prob not since it seems other big name builders have too much pride to post in my threads over on the Ruck forum.That just means im doing a good job and they hate it.

The AK Garage might be the best route.
Bring it on Cliff,im itching to do a crazy swap.When I free up some cash I wanna do a silverwing one even tho its been done already.I wasn't a fan of the frame/other aspects of it and would like to add my own twist to it.

Congrats on the upcoming baby.

I dont suggest it plus I think the legal limit to get on the freeway is 250cc minimum.

Got some new forks in for the build because the gold on the ATR wasn't gonna match the bike overall.Also painted some of the carb pieces black since i HATED the normal chinese color that comes on them.Also replaced the vacuum hoses with clear ones

RC custom's in black/stainless.

The carb was gonna be hitting the frame so made a stainless intake tube to move the carb and face it towards the center of bike.I gotta find a matching diameter rubber connector before I take a pic.

Wire tuck has started!

Thanks guys,here is 2 more pics.

Aftermarket triple tree
RC lowering forks in black/stainless

I got the rotor on the wheel hub but the caliper is out getting polished.Gonna need a different axle tube too cause the one on the hub is smaller than the axle that fits the forks.

i might have an axle for you.

i went through trying to get a wheel, rotor, axle and more after stoppies did this:
IMAGE 285

if i can find the extra 1 of the 2 that i bought, come pick it up.

you know what size axle it is?



- or -

do you need different bearings to run a larger axle?

There are all kinds of places to ride these things in Houston. Downtown, uptown, midtown, UH, Galveston, Kemah, Highway 3, pitbike...I can go on. Pretty much anywhere other than Houston's freeways Alleykat can probably elaborate on this more but there are even meets for these things...

Love the foot pegs, rotor and the forks Alleykat

Looks like that is the case.The 12mm axle fits the forks perfect and is the most common one.I wonder why daytona would pick a smaller size?

There is no specific place to ride,I just go everywhere.I live on BW8 and wallisville exit in EAST houston.I have been all the way to Katy before! Since you cant go on the freeways I have GPS hardwired onto my Ruck.

As far as weekly rides they are on Thursdays and weekend days vary.Sometimes sat,sometimes Sunday.We have more and more owners in Houston thats for sureeeee.
