While travelling in Asia you see a lot of these lowered/highly customized Honda Ruckus scooters which I think have a cool look. I've decided to borrow the vibe for a fun, low dollar build although there's no cheap way to replicate the look of those fat little tires.
Here's my starting point from our local road side recycle/reuse day.
Down to the bare bones after stripping all the plastic off.
Chopped about 6" out of steering/head tube to lower front end.
Extended rear swing arm and mocking up laid back stock shocks.
Fabbed 1/4" drop outs which will be made clamping later as planning to use lots of regen to support poor stock braking. Changed out motor to a higher power handling Golden Motor 901 based wheel which allows for rear 6" disc/Avid BB7 caliper. Initial plans are for 48-72v 45amp controller.
Decided to tuck the pedals in closer to the frame to use as foot rests. Will design pedal lock soon.
Cut off the stock handlebars and welded on a modified stem to install lower bars. May replace the bicycle seat with a custom built flat seat which would give more of a nod to the Ruckus style. Got stance?
