Pimp my Ruckus

JTM has some chrome planned... I "hear" Garlic Dog has a little something up his sleeve and I have gone down the tech path

First up, XM and GPS. You can't hear the motor, so you might as well have tunes. The GPS will allow me to record my sizzling top speed numbers to shut all the 'Busa owners the hell up.



I didn't want any flapping ear phone cords to be causing any aerodynamic drag so I remote mounted the jack to a location under the seat.



I heat gunned all the decals off except for the "Big Ruckus" ones. I have some new ones in mind

Disabled the interlock for the seat back...



...and the interlock for the seat cushion adjuster.



The most important addition of all. Thanks Honey! :rabia



Let's see your mad mods

Real men ride the Ruckii.

Do me a favor and put some wheel spinners on it just so I can see what it looks like.

Is neon passe? Just asking.

What?? No Ricky Bars? How'bout an orange velour seatcover for the true Barcalounger look? Maybe a "gay toolbox" with drawers & spare wheel on the back?

I'm trying to decide which style of spinner to go with.


Neon is for old farts like Garlic Dog.
