“Resurrecting a Ruckus”: jeffstaple brings his dead scooter back to life in this short film

 

The death of New York designer jeffstaple‘s 2002 Honda Ruckus scooter last year left a gap in his life, which he was finally able to fill again by transforming it into a road monster with the help of Alpinestars and Los Angeles-based Cycle World Magazine.

This yearlong process was recorded in the short film ”Resurrecting A Ruckus” which details the modifications the original scooter underwent, including a paint job based on jeffstaple’s signature white, grey and pink Pigeon colorway, and rebuilt components such as a high-performance 66cc sports-kitted engine and Yoshimura carbon fiber R&D exhaust.

The end result was the Staple Ruckus, ready to resume its role as jeffstaple’s trusty steed on the mean streets of New York. Watch the video above, then browse jeffstaple’s other projects here.

“Black & Tan” Yamaha XS400 Custom

Black-Tan-Yamaha-XS400-Custom-06

Austin motorcycle workshop Hold Fast Motors have just unveiled the “Black & Tan,” a custom 1979 Yamaha XS400 motorbike. The small workshop is run by Andy Hull who was inspired by the rough look and knobby tires of the Triumph ridden by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape, giving the bike a definite ’70s appeal.

Originally intended as a cafe racer, the bike naturally evolved into the Brat/Scrambler hybrid it is now. Outfitted with a quilted tan leather seat and tan leather saddlebags, the “Black & Tan” pays homage to a classic vintage motorcycle.
