How to take apart an electric scooter for electric parts.

Picture of How to take apart an electric scooter for electric parts.
Theis is the way I take apart a second-hand stand-on electric scooter for parts need for building a electric mountainboard.
(Idea comes from >> http://www.instructables.com/id/Electric-Mountain-Board/ )
The reason I bought a second hand one is because the parts I need are actually more expensive to buy seperately than buying a second hand scooter.......
(new parts=$320,scooter=$220.....)
Otherwise I wouldn't want to take apart this beauty.....

Motor is easier to take off than controller since it has only one cable.

After taking off everyhting I need, I put all the small parts in plastic bags and lable them. At last, put everyhting into a plastic box for easy organize.

This is my first instructable, which serve as a practice for me. I will post the instructable for building my version of electric mountain.

Thats give credic for the guy who come out the idea of electric mountainboard>>

I will use another method to mount the motor and controller directelly on to the axe so the motor will always in-line with the wheel sprocket. But also will not hurt the mountainboard. (means no welding, screwing, or superglueing on the board.)

Thanks for watching.
