The Legacy that is Maggie May… Our Pride and Joy is up for sale but not before we give her the send off in proper SF fashion.
We know, we know… its been roughly 5 months since her completion/makeover for the 2013 Super Sunday ride, but what time to finally get the update photos of her before shes sold plus get some introduction photos for her potential new owner? Check it.
We’ve owned and originally conceived Maggie and debuted her for the 2009 Nisei Show WAY the fuck back to stay true to our theme of #daretobedifferent. Rocking a ton of “one off” parts while introducing a few new ones while doing so. The goal, to mind fuck those who needed a fucking (sounds dirty, I know). Being one of the first guys stateside to build a “fatty” before manufacturing the goods for people to do it themselves, the Typical 7 inch or 8 inch wide wheels just wasn’t cutting it no longer, we needed to figure a way to go bigger THUS the 10×10 block of Aluminum you see here was presented. It wasn’t an easy task trying to pull all of these ideas together but with the help of our friends at BOWLSLA and TokyoParts, Maggie was sure to shine. Hell, she even got an honorable mention when she debuted at the 09 SEMA show in Las Vegas. MMv1 in all of her glory… 70cc Zuma Swapped 2t in a 10×10 form… the golden days.
Along side the TokyoParts ORZ which also made its Debut on U.S. soil
Fast Forward a few months, A lucky guy in Canada got his chance to buy the 10×10 2T swap so we arranged for Maggie to be dolled up in Classic GY6 fashion with one of the spare 190cc engines we had laying around for a Ride up north with our #NORCALEMPIRE fam that following weekend. Up she goes thanks to the versatile and interchangeable ATR billet parts. A simple mount, Wheel, Hub and Harness and Bam.
Same story all over, but this time, the 2T bug came back as a group of the homies and I wanted to MOB the Annual TWOSTROKE extravaganza not to far from us, so the GY6 had to kick the curb and with the help of ATR, Maggie May came back in more of a Racing fashion if you will. The standard ATR 2T slim mount went on and she was ready to go.
Sometime in between that, a fellow rider caught wind that I was letting Maggie go so he decided to take her in as his own and had us mod it with his vision in mind… I know right? Back to Gy6 she goes, but this time, a “fatty” Advan tire 232cc was put into play and boy was it fun.
A few months came around and he just didn’t have the time to enjoy her like we did so he offered her back to us at a fraction of the price since he knew how much we missed her and well, you guessed it, we had to change her up once again to her PRE final look but this time, back to the good ol’ fashion GET with a twist. The Intro to our 66.6 CC engine which did more than blow our minds, cruising a comfortable 55mph on PCH passing up GY6 engines for SS2011.
And thus time came, and I finally had her where we wanted. A comfortable and stylish cruiser. Over time she just kinda sat around when she wasn’t out riding or taking a beating. Show after show, we load and unload. Ride after ride, rock chips and Chrome / Polish parts start to Tarnish. My heart sank just looking at her, so I knew it was time to change it up… one last time. We officially present to you, Maggie May of 2013.
The idea for the remake was simple, and I preach it to many who call the shop asking for parts now. What brought us to this “scene” was the love for the Ruckus and the originality of it all. Everything from looks to collecting of rare Japanese parts. A more simple of times…
yet modern enough for today’s “standards”
To show what simple bolt on parts can change the look dramatically with the Hurricane Z bars…
to the rare Gem that is the Yoshimura Tri – Clone CF exhaust that has been reworked by our friend of BTXIND..
Its all in the details, with a mix of old and new. Rat Koubou Billet Triple Tree cover with integrated PIAA headlight. A custom 190mm ATR 10×4 front full dish Brake setup and a plethora of 24k GOLD plated Gojin dress up washers and bolts to hold the bike and Misc Zoomania Carbon pcs together. Every exposed wire and cable was loomed to perfection.
How people would kill for the original “ZOOMANIA” frame stickers you see here. When purchasing wasn’t an option, how many had to replicate them to sell.
My good friend from the Island got me the Rat GT cover as a gift because Maggie had to have it. A discontinued and rare original product by BOWLSLA gas cap tops off the foot section. It was hard but the ultimate decision to paint match ALL of the Carbon Fiber was done. To prevent unwanted scratching and paint chips, we fabricated a side of pegs to comfortably rest our feet when riding.
We also got in to the upholstery business for the Ruckus’, This seat with optional strap will be titled, the Maggie May. Feel free to email us with any requests. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All in all, its been a hell of a ride (literally) but it just seems fit that she deserves a better place in life besides sitting here and rotting away. Other projects with work and customer work NOT to mention life’s obstacles being thrown at us on the daily is keeping us from really doing what we want to with her, I mean really, the only other engine to Toss in now would be a Z125 swap but that won’t be anytime soon. Do us the favor and take care of her as much as we will. Maggie, we’ll miss you.

+ more I’m 100% sure that I left out
I’m almost ashamed to total up the parts to even throw a number out… This bike along with many of my other projects that I’ve collected over years has truly been my pride and joy. A representation of how much I love my bike to even put the time and effort even money into. Its been a great run with Maggie, and it seems about time to find her a new owner who will truly care about her as much as I did.
I really hate to say this but parts minus service alone (including the bike) is close to if not more than 14k :headbashing:
I will start the bid at $7k price lowered
QUOTED from TR : “Now I know this is TR, and I’ve been here long enough to know that there’s gonna be a select group of individuals who will “bash” me and say how much this is a “RIP off” and how you can get a “fully built GY6 bike” for the same price if not better. By all means, save me the trouble and help your selves to those bikes, because Maggie just isnt one of “those” bikes.”
I’m a fare fellow to work with, please send any questions over this way and we can discuss her future.
I know I’m going to regret this, but for the time being… it is what it is
