Selective Sophistication The upper echelon of Ruckus stylistics James Wong's '06 Ruckus "The LV Project" James Wong has held a close friendship with the guys at Rucksters ever since High School. Always involved in the import movement, he mingles in circles that feature legends like Dr. Charles and Pit Crew. With the help of the good Doctor, Wong began modding his scooter back in '07, and even had a GY6 swap done by Killer Scooter early on; well before the Ruckus phenomenon ever got under way. After a few years of tinkering, he'd grown somewhat bored with his project and decided to call it quits. That is, until he attended Super Sunday and took note of all the high-end builds on display. With the fire once again stoked, Wong decided to have another go at building a show stopper, and he headed to the Rucksters compound to get started. With the help of Aldo Villagran of BTX, the two team's brain storming resulted in a complete Louis Vuitton color theme based around the LV seat wrap that had adorned the scooter prior to its tear down. Already armed with the industry standard 150cc GY6 swap, every inch of the LV Project build was customized using rPRO and BTX hard parts from front to back. To accentuate the fashionable seat is a fresh coat of Du Pont Champagne paint with a number of brown anodized supporting components. To add some attitude to the pretty face, a big foot-sized 10x7 six-spoke golf cart rear wheel wrapped in a 225 tire was fitted to the rear end. Hai adds "this is the first time Rucksters and BTX has collaborated on a complete build, and I think the end result is remarkable." We couldn't agree more as the brown anodizing and monster rear wheel and tire combo strike an intriguing mix that sets the LV Project apart from the crowd.
