so i figured i would share the progress of my 2005 honda ruckus.. aka stella in a build thread.

i picked this bad boy up of the end of summer of 2012.

i had a blast with it, the water cooled motor was great! im the third owner and it had over 10k on the clock! but at the end of the day it wasn't enough for me..

after weeks of riding around and reading and looking around, i wanted to go gy6 150.. pretty much the gy6 swap is three times bigger then the stock motor and air cooled.

shortly after pick up this motor i had to get a set of mounts, big thanks to steve from monstergy6.com for getting me a great deal on my mounts and other little things. these things are 100% bolt up, with zero cutting or anyother type of bullshit:goodjob:

it started to get colder, so i went ahead and pulled everything apart for powered coating and shaving. this was by far the fastest and easiest break down ever!
