    hi thought it was a great project, perhaps a steam generator and piston noises

    that is awesome


    This is sincerely a really cool ride! And a really great design with the shiny front part.

    Wie schätzt du die Chancen ein, so etwas typisiert zu bekommen? Bin zwar aus AT, wird aber nicht anders als bei euch sein.

    Ich denk sehr unwahrscheinlich wenn ich mir den ganzen Katalog da anschaue , was muss und darf und kann... würd das Teil nie strassenzulässlich werden ;)

    impressive that the little motor will push it around. does it move well?

    yes it runs good, the old e scooter was ment to pull 150 kg so its good, it could be bether but its a fun ride not ment to be a dragster ;)

    interesting idea and nice pics. needs a description for what exactly youre doing though if you want it to be a good guide

    i can understand that. its just a little more helpful if you quickly describe the things youre putting together

    Gottleib Daimler would have been proud. The design is close to his.
