  1. My new ride. I'm still trying to get up the nerve to ride it. :mfclap:

  2. See lots of those highly modified around here. Looks like fun.
    Hey is that your garage?:shock:

  3. Is that the 50 or the 200? Sorry I don't know them by sight. One of the most honest and pure rides out there. I'd add one if I was building a quiver.

    The Ruck Stars always look like they are having a blast in PDX
  4. Ya, my garage in The Dalles. Sneezy, this is the 50cc one. They made a "big Ruckus" that was a 250 but they are fairly rare. I bought this from the Copart auction in PDX. I noticed a few "bad asses" riding them in Portland.crackup:
  5. Ah (choo), I see 50 and 250, In New Mexico you can get a license at 13 for a 100 ccs - so me and my brother rocked 200cc vespas with the tags taken off - I can only imagine being able to do that with a 250 ruckas -

    What is the plan - an around the ranch, hanger bike? Gas saver? Cruse around?
  6. This was a pure impulse buy. I actually was going to buy an Aprilla Tuno and ended up coming home with this. I have to say its growing on me, I can't walk pass it without doing something to it. I just ordered new mirrors, levers, etc to get it sorted out. It will do 40 mph but for $3,000 worth of mods I could get to 50!! What's the plan? I'll probably use it for a guest bike and beer runs (I'm an alcoholic).

    Well I've ridden one and can tell you without exaggerating, when an animal jumps out in front of you and you have that 49cc motor giving it all, the brakes, or there lack of, are fucking frightening.

    Awesome! I really want one.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did it set you back at Copart?
  14. $575, than another $185 for fees. Thats with a branded title. The bike was a theft recovery, no crash damage just a screwed up ignition, etc. I just bought $200 worth of parts to get it perfect again. It only has 1,700 miles on it. So, not a money maker but I'll have a nice scoot for around 1K.
  15. I'll post more pictures of the garage when I get it cleaned up!
  16. Thinking about doing a "fatty" tire conversion. What do you think of this?

  17. Do it!

    Looks like a mini Batman bike!
  18. not bad i see a few around town and some back roads they look like fun.. congrats
