Fatlace x Bowls x Ruckus

So Mark Arcenal, THE man behind Fatlace, has always been notorious for his creativity, vision, and building up anything he gets his hands on into something incredible. In the car build world, he’s built up VW buses/bugs, countless SR-motored drift cars, a Fatlace Scion featured at SEMA 2008 and more. As a matter of fact, just to get a better idea of how big Mark Arcenal is, check this out to see what else he’s gotten his hands on throughout the years.

Anyway, he’s gotten his newest project back from BOWLS LA – a streetwear shop that also specializes in Honda Ruckus parts and builds. Check this out:

“So a few months ago Al said he was going down to LA for some Ruckus meet and race. I took that opportunity to ask him if he’d drop my ruckus off to Brandon at Bowls to get a complete makeover.

Already spending over 2500 on the Ruckus, I really wanted to create something different. The only problem was time which I didn’t have. So I contacted Brandon over at Bowls to go YoGabbaCrazy on it. He asked what my budget was and we worked off that. As you can see, the bike turned out great. Sick colorway with the Brooks color leather saddle.”

  2. Wow, this is choice. What about the low handlebars? I don’t see them listed among the customizations. Am I missing it?

    “Custom grinded all unnecessary shit off the frame”, yes! This is a 49cc(?) work of art.

    I’d really be curious to know what this project cost.
