Dear Guys; I'm an older Veteran and I live at a Veteran's Residence in Pittsfield. Last Winter me, and some of the guys were talking about not being able to get into town without asking for a ride. One of the guys, now deceased, bought a cheap Chinese powerboard with a seat, ( which accounts for the fact that we refer to them as SCOOTERS). Low and behold the idea caught on and I bought one of the same. Wouldn't you know, just as I have read in all the forums, the damn thing spent more time in our garage than on the road. I got fed up with "Ride a mild, fix a while". So, I decided to build my own. I guese I won't be riding my new scoot untile Spring. That's where I'm at right now. Whata U think?
