[quote name='scorpio']FIRST!

my beloved crotch rucket...



built her from just a bare frame





Wow, nice work! I always wondered if would make sense to try to find a frame and start from scratch. It seems you would replace most parts on a custom build, but it's a the little things that add up. If you never owned a Ruckus, I guess it would make it hard to build one from scratch.



I like the NSR wheels, what are the other aftermarket parts or brands you used? What seat frame, frame extension, shocks, brakes etc?



Thanks

Thanks,

If I was to do it again, i would try to find a beater and rebuild it because like you say, once you buy all the nuts, bolts, etc. etc., you will have spent as much as a used ruck and spent more time waiting on parts.



The only advantage of this route is you know everything is new and in good working order.

Thanks for the parts list, looks like you put some serious time and effort into this build.

Not to mention the the small cash investment : )

I appreciate your feedback on the frame vs beater starting point. I guess buying a complete bike would make more sense, and you could probably get back a large part of the investment on selling the "take offs."

They have some serious skills. Imagine being able to make your own parts or overcome any mounting/parts fitment issues by reworking an existing part! Awesome!
