    Soooo not sure how many of you are in touch with the scooter modding craze, but over at Intercrew we are playing with some fun stuff.

    First, the big 15" wheel with 195/45 tire:

    Seat is lower AND the taillight cluster has been moved.

    :D Exactly. Lean = buy sportbike, even a Ninja 250. This is for playing / cruising on.

    i'm 6'2" 215 and it moved alright w/ me... most people do the GY6 swap.. it ups it to a 150cc and it'll go 60mph then

    the swap itself isnt that expensive.. not sure if you have to do a frame extension to fit it in there though

    You don't HAVE to extend the frame to get it in there I don't think- but that's pretty easy. GY6 engines (or actually whole wrecked bikes with GY6s on them) can be had for a few hundred bucks. Cheap.

    What's the best place to find a ruckus? Also is the gy6 a direct swap? Or is the modifications needed?

    I vote yes, because this elimnates the need for balance, and a kickstand, thus lightening it.
