Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Glad your happy with the real donny. It's almost new, I only used it a few brief times, but have had it for 10 years or so. On another note the Franken ruck is undergoing a makeover; cleaning it up a bit and preping it for sale. http://lh3.ggpht.com/_pBc_J7VVJD0/Sc5WdB5kERI/AAAAAAAABqs/J9QoehgRfe0/s...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Hey donny yeah everything was pretty tip top. The box looked like it held together really well. Those grey hound guys don't handle their packages too much which is always good. upon getting to the station I had to use one of their box cutters to half the box and pile everything into one; it was nece...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Ok So I contacted ICBC today to get the full just of using a met frame for a ruck and they quoted me from the bible that it wouldn't fly unless I got it registered with a new VIN. I don't want to cut any fraudulent corners so I figure I'd best just stick with the new frame I already have. Yes 400 is...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Hey Donny Thanks again. I picked them up at the bus station a couple days ago, I've been a slave to work lately so I didn't look at anything until late last night. I tell you, It was a challenge riding all that back on the franken. I had a lot of on lookers. I'm going to clean up that Triple tree ri...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Ok well I talked to grey hound and they said the stuff should arrive next week some time. In the mean time I scored a loan of the front triple tree so away I went with the build. I started work thursday night and finished up at around 2am this morning. I'll change few things later but this is pretty...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Yeah gas tank for sure; didn't seem like anyone had one so, I ordered in a new one. I expect I'll get that in a week and since it's new I'll plop in into the GY6. Franken ruck is going to get my old front frame and I'd expect it'll take on a look similar to my old ruckus. We'll see how she comes alo...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Yeee Haaw. :o Damn this is good news donny, Thank you sir. I'll get started on the build ASAP. Looks like I'll start with an adaptation of the two bikes just to get me on the road again and then once I get a couple more parts from a few other sources I'll have her all buttoned up to her true form. :...

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Was thinking of putting together a charter trip for my roommate and I as we both love fish and figured it'd be way more fun to go catch some this year. We may even get a deep freezer for the cause. But for sure If you wanna come along. That would be rad. :ugeek:

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

Yeah at this point my plan is to take some time to put the GY6 bike together- make sure it's just right.

But I'll be able to build franken ruck way sooner and ride her until the GY6 ride is complete.

Trying to figure a name for the GY6 so far I started with "Coma Chicken" then "Chickie Poo"

Re: Jovesque's ruck build

LOL it's funny reading your car stories. if it was only a warmer country - then maybe everyone would ride a scooter. Imagine all that space on the roads and all the bikes. :D I get my GY6 tomorrow morning - I still wont be able to do much as It's headed to a shop for a little work, but I do get to l...
