Raising a Ruckster

The Honda Ruckus is to scooters as the Volkswagen Thing is to beach buggies. They are rugged, industrial, and just plain cool—all wrapped up in an adorably tiny package that is cheap, cheerful, and uniquely fun.

As with all things quirky, cheap, and motorcycle, Honda’s Ruckus has become a cult classic in two-wheeled tuning communities. Chief among Ruckus tuners is California-based Rucksters. The shop’s array of blinged-up and bored-out Ruckus customs is impressive.

Honda Restores the Very First Car it Brought to America

Honda Restores the Very First Car it Brought to America A Los Angeles Honda specialist stumbled upon this 1967 N600 wearing VIN #001, and now it's headed for the Honda museum. Honda's start in the U.S. was rather inauspicious. With the 1973 fuel crisis was still a few years in the future and big cars with big V8s ruling the road, this diminutive 1967 Honda N600 was an odd duck in America. But now, the first Honda to ever reach U.S. shores is being lovingly restored, as documented in a video series called Serial One. Los Angeles Honda mechanic Tim Mings bought this little green Honda without realizing its provenance.

Last week I bought a Honda Ruckus . I was looking at the Yamaha R3, a Honda Grom, and the Ruckus for my 4th bike in the garage. Y'all wondered why on earth I'

Nobody builds engines like Honda , and the Ruckus proves it. The liquid-cooled single-cylinder 49cc engine cranks out all the power you need for urban riding, while We ’re not kidding. With the Ruckus , you’ll spend less time filling up and more time riding around town—and save some big coin doing it.

Ruckster’s latest project is said to be inspired by Louis Vuitton, and gets a Vuitton-esque palette of champagne and bronze in homage to the fashion icon. The skeletal frame stands in stark contrast to the anodized metal and designer seat. The combination brings flashy aesthetic intrigue to the humble scooter platform. It’s low-fi cop bait with a Liberace twist.

An upgraded 150 cc scooter powerplant and exposed drive belt brings both drama and street cred to the party. That’s a 300 percent boost in displacement over the Ruckus’s stock 49cc unit. The GY6 engine and a combined weight south of 200 pounds give the Ruckster a good platform for performance to match this rig’s looks.

The longer you look at the Ruckster LV Project, the more questions you ask. Questions like: “Why is the rear tire stolen from a golf cart?” Who cares why? It looks awesome. That’s why.

Auction Alert: This 1977 Honda XR75 Has No Reserve

Auction Alert: This 1977 Honda XR75 Has No Reserve You meet the nicest people in the dirt on a Honda. Bikes that seem like they’ve been loved are my favorites—and while this 1977 Honda XR 75 on Bring A Trailer certainly shows wear, it’s exactly the kind you’d expect. The kind you’d hope for, even. According to BAT, it has only had two owners since new—the first of whom stored it in a San Fernando Valley garage for most of its life after their daughter didn’t embark on the motocross adventures her parents had planned. It’s not perfect, and that adds to its charm.

We go over why your factory ruckus parts wont work We manufacture many parts in house with our state of the art CNC facility. Same day shipping and only ship what we have in stock.

Mike quit his job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 29,000 miles and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of his own meals, he keeps the costs low and the landscape changing. We caught up with him on his way down the west coast to hear his story.

Why is there a Yoshimura exhaust? Who cares why? It sounds awesome. That’s why! Why is the suspension fully adjustable? Well, because sometimes it’s fun to make things needlessly complex and performance oriented. That’s why.

There is a good chance you may not quite understand the appeal of this custom scooter, or any custom scooter for that matter, and that’s okay. If you have to ask, we probably can’t explain it to you. The fact remains that in a world of hipster-toting Vespas and Vespa replicas, custom Ruckus builds provide genuine individualism and self-expression.

If you’re looking for a bike that makes people chuckle at the same time they nod approvingly, we’d argue this is a prime candidate.
