Default Intercrew's Ruckus projects... 15", 18", Trike, pro shoot added 7/9/2010

So I've posted these up on Totalruckus and Hondaswap- thought I'd throw them up here and let you guys take a look at them.

New pics added 7/9/2010 at the bottom.

First off, a Ruckus with a GY6 swap and a nice fat 15" wheel on the back and a 195/45 tire:





















It was built a few years ago... but some people on other forums didn't think it ran, so I shot a video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihggbthDlWE



And then the Ruck with the 255/35-18 on an 18x10 wheel:













Which was just a test fit case... it's REALLY close- but it fits!

----

This is what the big 18 is going on to- I don't think anybody's doing this to a Ruck yet- we're just having fun! It's a work in progress, so the fun bits are blurred out so the haters don't call it ugly (it's ugly right now!).

















Hopefully you guys get some enjoyment out of these. :D

----- added 7/9/2010 -----

These were shot on 5/25/2010 somewhere in Dallas by RJ Alvarade. RJ's site: http://www.xposedvision.com/

Thought I'd share.

Yeah, the 15 is a complete running bike- it's a fun, slightly less visually loud setup.

It's UGLY right now. The welding jig and a bunch of metal that's not supposed to be there are still in place. The fact that ATV arms and hubs were used isn't a big deal- but the nasty bits stay covered up until they're pretty.

I feel ya on that. So does Phillip have his hands in on this build or is it all you? oh and this is Off topic a little. I sold Phillip a Camo 07 ruckus 2 years ago. Wondering if they did anything to it if you know.

They're not mine- these are all Phillip's pet projects. I am helping him with them a bit though. I'm working for/with Phillip these days- helping him design a few things, promote the shop etc.

Here's the trike running this weekend:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OON_2mUkC_U

Needs work, and needs a better video and higher quality pictures, but it is just a proof of concept (we're going to build another one from scratch) and it DOES run. Tops out right at 50mph in its current form, and is very stable.
