This may be a short lived thread just to forewarn everybody, Idk. Anywho, bought a 2022 Honda Ruckus. I ordered a gray and black one but they are in high demand and Honda is only shipping a fraction of their orders this year. That being said I told brochacho whichever color combo comes in first I'm down. I ordered it on my bday and got it like 2 1/2 months later. My least favorite color combo buts it's grown on me...

Everybody knows I can't leave anything alone so to start I cut the duck tail off of the rear fender. That made me hate the tail light and turn signals so I put a Yamaha R6 tail light on it with sequential turns...

Didn't get factory paint but grabbed the closest I could find at the old Acehole.

While that was cool and all until I can take the time to repaint the whole frame I put a carbon fiber cap over it until that day comes......if it ever comes...

I may end up doing more carbon fiber stuff to replace the black plastic stuff. So far it's just the cap and the key scratch guard.

That looks like a fun town run around toy. I almost bought a ruckus from a friend but apparently I didn't act fast enough and he traded it for a new furnace, guess I can't blame him.
So I ended up finding a 1983 Honda V45 Sabre instead.

Any big plans for the ruckus? Like a stretch or engine upgrades?

I actually had it bumping the limiter today at 47mph. She's a spicy unit. lol Mostly just cosmetics and comfort upgrades for now. I'm too big to lower it. I don't want to do anything to take away from the reliability either. Maybe paint, fork upgrade, bmx headset swap with some nicer bars. Stuff like that/we''ll see.

S10 stuff aaaaallllmost happened. Almost got a stepside bed, that would have lit a fire. That poor Honda sitting there on brand new coilovers needing a rack forever now too. Life.

With one of these, when I eventually join the Old Furts Club, I can get to the Bingo games faster and get a prime seat up front!

I've always enjoyed seeing the different ways people build these. Looking forward to following along here.

I've always wanted a Ruckus, but don't really need another toy. Check out my Vespa GTS. I've seen 91 MPH on the speedometer, but that was before the engine mods and the up-gearing. Aiming for 100 MPH just to say I can peg the speedometer. Water cooled, fuel injection, electronic ignition, etc. It will pull wheelies. The windscreen actually adds to the top speed.

  • 13" x 3.5" wheels from a UK bike, custom chromed (stock are 12" x 3")
  • Aftermarket exhaust, no baffle
  • 275cc cylinder/piston
  • aftermarket high-flow head
  • aftermarket camshaft
  • aftermarket transmission parts
  • currently working on tune to raise rev limiter to 10,500
  • other misc. aftermarket parts, custom chrome stuff, OEM accessories, etc.

for under 50cc I chose the Roughhouse 50. a little zippier than the ruckus. 2 stroke oil injection. fun little machine.

I think I'd take the scooter backed by a major Japanese corporation over the Chicago company that shells their manufacturing out to various factories in India/China.
