I really like that LED halo look. One of the guys that I occasionally get the chance to ride with has a Ruckus, and he's done that mod. I understand it takes some time and patience, but on the last ride I kept looking in the mirror to admire his headlights! It's really cool, and really helps with visibility in my opinion. He ran the LED halo during the day, and you could certainly notice it.

Keep up the good work!

the baking process to open up the headlamp will prob be the longest part but i think it should be worth it. ya i plan on running the halo as a DRL and the HID for the night.

Here's a video of Dave's Ruckus. At about 24 seconds in, you get a close up of his headlight:

Can't wait to see yours! You've got a really nice Vino man. How's that front end and disc brake doing for you?

Best,

ah yes i see the led string lights he used, looks good.

wicked, although i didn't get to ride much this year and went back to a calmer cyl kit it helps having the disc set up. front end is perfect no issues at all, totally worth the swap

Good job oxide! :) I cut my scooter teeth on a Vino. It was actually my wife's. It pretty much served as a "test mule" for Moped Hospital. This was back in '01 (I think), when Vino's were pretty new still and nobody knew what would work in them.

Wow man, that's nice! You can't even tell that there was a key there. :) Great work.

Cheers!
