Ruckuses, Rukii, Ruckee… what’s the plural of Ruckus, that stripped-down 50cc scooter from Honda with the pipe frame? Whatever word you use, a huge number of these bug-eyed machines made the trek from the Illest Boutique in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo district to Alpinestars’ U.S. headquarters in Torrance, California, for the second annual Ruck Out gathering.
Alpinestars hosted the post-ride chill and a custom Ruckus show. Extended swingarms, turbos and built motors highlighted the fun tweaks done to Honda’s diminutive scooter.
Pack of happy Rucksters.
Can’t call it custom without bling.
Show winners (l to r): Jensen Acosta, Award of Excellence; Tony Chong, WTF Award;
Felix Lyubovnya, Best of Show.
WINNER Luis Chavez from Los Angeles took home a 2013 Ruckus.
