How to build an electric mobility scooter?

I'd really like to build an electric mobility scooter similar to one of the Rascals or even the Walmart buggies for my mother.  I keep thinking I can't be the only one that has ever considered this but I can't seem to find much.  I don't suppose anyone would want to make an instructable on this particular project?  I may try and tackle it myself and post an instructable, its just that there are pieces of the puzzle I'm not quite sure about.

look around a used power scooter can be had for $50. I got a Pride scooter for $300. (similar to the new Pride Celebrity X-1)

Cheaper to just buy one. Especially if your mother has medicare. Assuming your in the US.

+1 - went down this route before - buy one
