Not too functional -- you lose the underseat storage bin! Obviously the plastics won't fit either. What are you planning on doing to get the fairings to match up?

Yeah no underseat lockable storage, but still plenty of room for a seat bag or something under the seat.
This is a no fairing in the rear project, with foot pegs and no floor board :o
If Honda or Yamaha made a 150 ruckus, with the gas tank on the floor and handlebars detached from the dash, I would of bought one of those. :lol:

Is that post-weld and painted? Looks surprisingly good.

So you're going with the tube frame for the ruck look? How about in the front?

Yeah the foot peg bracket just got welded on, in that pic.
Seat frame is mostly done, still tweaking the seat cushion to sit a little lower.
The front fairing/headlight, fuel door and center consule is staying, for now ;)
Tail light I have no idea for now, probably use the ruckus tail so I can at least ride it.

Ghetto yes, but actually very secure with 4 regular zip ties. :lol:
Took the bracket I made for the gy6/ruckus and put it on the PCX.
Here is the tail light and blinkers welded to the rear end(license plate attaches under the tail light).
Also added a custom fender to the rear. 8)

Leaving the front end stock for now. I need to trim the stock windscreen down a bit, because the new steering setup hits the visor at full turn...
