New build! taking the RT70 off the ruckus and transplanting it onto a spree frame I picked up for free. you all might remember my old mina spree, my first 2t build.

this bike already has a mount welded onto it for a GET motor with a 8" wide wheel. I'm going to take advantage of this mount and run a skinny. should center right up if I did my measuring correct.

I decided to do a drum setup on this one seeing as I'm only using it in straight lines. I still need to get a ruckus triple tree.

SSS spree gusset is sitting at a friends house waiting to be welded on

wheels are 12" grand axis rear wheel and an old school 10" Honda wheel up front. matchy matchy :ndance: only a few pics right now but you get the idea of where I'm headed. My fastest time on my ruckus at the drags is a 10.8 I know with this lighter frame and a hired 100lbs rider I know I can get under 10 seconds easily.

Back in her glory days

how I picked it up

wheels, minus the tire, going to run a slick in back

I still have to finish rebuilding my helix, then I'm going to start on this project. taking suggestions on radiator options and placement :hi:

like I said this was going to be a slow one haha, got both wheels in hand now, still waiting on the drum hub as i accidentally got sent a disk hub. Dont need big brakes only going in a straight line :ndance: Next on the list is a ruckus triple tree and then figuring how what radiator to use and where to place it. still like the idea of using a GET rad or two.

older pic but CVT side.

i found the PERFECT candidate for the ruckus too. a zuma 50 missing the top end, shrouds, exhaust and rear wheel. * PERFECT and for a screaming good deal. this is slowly happening.

I'm so glad that engines going in a lighter Fram with a normal size rim. Also glad to see she's still alive and well!

ruckus front end assembled, have some chopped handlebars coming my way, that will fix that huge gap. 4x140 drum brake fits good. had to do some massaging but its all there. Maybe if im feeling spunky this week ill pull the rt and get it installed.
