Why does everyone seem to think that the only way to mod something is with off-the-shelf parts? Does no one know how to make things with their hands anymore?

I saw a video on youtube of a turbo charged Grom. The guy on it was pushing about 350 so I bet I could get up pretty fast on it.

my ruck is mostly self modded out from parts from other bikes and custom wired by me....it also explains why i haven't had it running in almost 4 years. i'm finally almost able to get back to the project.

I don't see the point in a ruckus really the grom is far more appealing atleast to me. I remember meeting a guy a while ago who spent enough on a ruckus between the bike itself and mods to go get a new fz1 or the like. I mean all that cash to barely run highway speeds and look goofy doing it I don't get it. To each their own as much as I don't like them I do appreciate the work some of the guys put into them. At c&c a guy had a few builds there that were on air and custom bodied very interesting.

Plenty of people plan on it. But it rarely turns out as nicely as it looks in your head. So to avoid that... parts a plenty to mod.... and home-make things you KNOW you can get right.

exactly! the first ruckus AlleyKat did was born from his mind and a lot of fab work at my place. He has since then been an innovator of parts his self and probably put more modded rucks out of HIS shop than most thought existed in houston.

Actually, this is what I want to avoid. I can do it with my hands, but I don't want some cobbled up bed-iron bracked some guy made in his garage with some tack welded sheet metal looking thing he spray painted black.

If I was gonna take it out to pick up a hog I dropped on the far edge of the back 40, fine. But if I want to ride something a little showy I want the best I can afford.

Some guys got talant - some guys got crabs....

That is even more stripped than a typical looking Ruckus. Why do so many have the stretch and especially the engine moved back? Did that allow you to fit a larger tires, better ride or just aesthetics?

I was surprised at the curb weight. I thought they'd be lighter. Does anyone think it's possible to shoehorn in a one lung 650? I guess that what I'm asking - is there a lot of room under the hood. I haven't had a chance to look close at one.

On the other hand - if I go this route I don't want to overpower the rest of the chassis and components. I wouldn't really be looking for power or top end speed, but I'd like enough to comfortably ride HWY 6.

But that Grom looked very attractive - maybe that's just a lot less dinkin around.

this is how mine sits now. I have a fuel delivery issue but haven't had the chance to chase down the problem.utf 8BSU1HMDAzNDktMjAwOTA4MDctMDgyM

this is the last rendering i did before i had to put the project on hold. i might have been a few hours into it. this is using parts i have sitting around on my bench and in storage. when the project gets under way, i plan to shorten up the swingarm and move some other parts around.

Ive seen one on youtube with a 600cc CBR motor in it, that would be a little overkill, but I'd ride it.
