Build Profile: Radio Ocean City

Our most recent build was for Radio Ocean City, a new local internet radio station. We took a slightly modified Ruckus and turned into a themed build ready to be displayed at the station's next gig or event. The build features a custom 1 piece rear frame, custom blue paint, "Fireball" exhaust, matching rims, and a bunch of other one-off pieces. This Ruckus represents Ocean City, MD, our hometown and area of operation, and it was an honor to have been a part of it.

We spared no expensive on this custom build. A variety of logo cutout parts give this ruck a unique one of kind flair that can't be imitated. Check out the 13x8 "BBS" spoke rear wheel! These rims were a center piece of the build especially during a time when custom wheels were hard to come by.

We special ordered a real JDM shock to tie in the rear suspension for this build. We used the SFT Ruckus Dual Mount on this build, which made stretching and mounting the fatty setup a breeze. For performance, we used a PC20 big carb and a NCY CDI which comfortably pushes this Ruckus past 45mph. No bolt was left untouched. A variety of different dress up bolts, color matched pieces, as well as holographic vinyl stickers were used to tie everything together.

Another highlight of this build is the custom logo stitched seat done by Cheeky Seats. Instead of embroidering the logo as normally done for logos on fabric, we choose to have the logo cut out on pieces of fabric and pieced together. This helps with durability and really makes the logo "pop".

We went with a custom "Beams" headlight setup to further add to the uniqueness of the build. These headlights were fabricated from stainless steel plate with 4 inch compact LEDs to create a sleek and ultra bright setup. Stay tuned as we may add this to our future product offerings...
