Very cool, you don't see too many Ruckus.  I've got a partially assembled version now.   It just doesn't "work" for me at the park, so I used some of the parts for another build.

Re: 1999 Robison Ruckus

Wow -this the same exact frame as the GT X-Games (my bikes).  Only difference is the cut-out shape in the rear drop-outs. 
I feel like I'm driving a tank on this -in a good way -dark, heavy, threatening, secure....

Would Trade stuff for: purple paul v-brakes or purple supercross/bombshell v-brakes, 2000 24" DB Reactor Team frame ,  Voxom and Enigma stuff, Alliant / Radix stem and stuff, JW and Stiffys stuff, dark blue alloy chainring bolts, white sealed threadless headset,  Pink Halo 24" tires, Torker 24 threadless fork, cool late mid-school cruiser parts.  PLEASE PAY AS GOODS - SO I CAN SHIP TO YOU FAST.  Just say "NO" to Parcel Post.

Re: 1999 Robison Ruckus

Yes you are correct that the X-games and Ruckus look identicle. The 2000 Ruckus model actualy had the rear dropouts without the cut-out slots but the 99 had the slots. The other differences are that the X-games only has a chromoly down tube and seat tube and the Ruckus is 100% chromoly. The Ruckus was also USA made and was sold as just a frame kit as well as a complete bike. So when the Ruckus was made in 1999 and 2000 and then discontinued for 2001, GT decided to use the frame for itself and made the X-games for 2001 instead of the 1999 X-games that was made off of the GT Bump. There was also a brown version of the frame called the Robinson Karkass for 2000. Its a realy nice frame and looks realy cool with the all black and silver theme.

Yeah -same size as some of the Haro aluminum race frames -31.6mm -odd.
