    I thought I would like to see if I could make a giant scooter with more leftovers I had laying around.This should be some childhood fun times!My wife thinks I should make it a tandem.Only time will tell.Im not sure if I want to use 2x26" wheels or a 20" in the rear although I like the look of two big wheels....Any opinions? I will use a longboard skateboard for the deck should be pretty cool when its done! :mrgreen: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: 2nd build Big Wheel Scooter

    I've got three scoots and am doing one after my build off bike. A tandem would be very cool, nice imagination! If you use TWO 26" wheeels you can incorporate a rear rack to carry things. This way the back kicker won't hit anything. Here's a link to a scooter topic here. viewtopic.php?f=10&t=21769&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=scooter
    Good luck. Looking forward to seeing this.

    Very cool. I have parts acquired to do a similar build. Just haven't taken the time to do it.

    I made a Scooter........nearly took out my mail box coming out the end of my driveway. I still have it and was thinking of putting a weed wacker motor on it and then I remembered the mail box :shock:

    Re: 2nd build BigWheel Scooter "More progress pics Welding Wife"

    I got a little time this afternoon so I shortened the rear fender 4" to get the molded section out.I used a couple old spokes to slide in the rolled edges of the fender to keep it nice and straight.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: BigWheel Scooter "More progress pics Welding Wife"

    Fri night I started peaking the frame to make it more rigid and I think it just looks good!Sooo here is a few pics on how I do it......[​IMG][​IMG]I added a 1" square tube gusset to the headtube where the peak will tie into it...[​IMG]And here is the deck ill be using,A Madrid Big Daddy Ed Roth Rat Fink longboard,How cool is that?!!!!A buddy of mine collects skateboards and has been saving this for a special project so he was stoked when I came to him lookin for a deck,he just grinned and said he had the perfect one for me and he couldnt have been more right![​IMG]
