After a couple of years of thinking about one of these, I finally went out and purchased a used 2007 Honda Ruckus scooter yesterday. I recently moved into the heart of downtown Atlanta, and with pretty much everything being less than 3 or 4 miles away, I finally decided it would actually be a somewhat practical purchase. It’s by no means a speed demon in stock form (topped it out at around 45mph going down a big hill on my innagural test ride yesterday), but it’s insanely fun for what it is. In traditional S3 form, we have quite a handfull of plans for it in the near future, and are looking for any companies to help out however you can. We’re looking to evntually replace handlebars, add underseat LED tail lights, stretch the frame, do a front disc brake conversion, swap in a 150cc GY6 motor, and probably a ton of other things that I can’t even think of right now (see some of the pics below for some of our inspiration). Hopefully we’ll start modding this thing soon so check back often as we’ll be sure to cover any installs on our blog.

Hopefully ours won’t be too far off from something like this before too long…
