In the late 90's, reality TV discovered the world of chopper motorcycle customizers and pretty much destroyed it with American Choppers. Next up was the Cafe Racer craze, but Hollywood wasn't as successful with exploiting that niche. Maybe the next area to overexpose is the custom scooter scene. This could be the ticket for your 15 minutes of fame (or infamy). Find this 2008 Honda Ruckus for sale in El Monte, CA for $5,500 via craigslist.
I have a hard time imagining what it's like to ride this scooter. It kinda makes my back hurt just looking at it. However the point most likely isn't the riding expereince on a diserted canyon road jut after sunrise, its the look at me while cruising down main street and showing up on FaceGram.
