Step 1: The How To

I did similar kickscooter a few years ago It was November 2001. It was lot of fun but I sold it as my 4-wheel kick scooter is more practical.

Good job for 13! I have allways though a scooter with a seat would be cool. Nice for a first project too.

Could you cut a whole in the middle and put in the front wheel of a trike?

author

put a kiddies bike wheel on the back, add a crank and chain now that would be sweeeet btw good job on welding at the age of 13

This is basically same as, the early predecessor of bicycle, hobby horse ! If the seat is high enough you can kick with both legs while sitting on the saddle.

I love the idea, but you should probably add more steps, in greater detail, i understand that you did it after you made it, it is just a suggestion for future instructables.

THanks for the tip. I couldnt take pictures while making it I was way to exited to get it finished

Usually when i do something like that, i just grab somethings that look like what i made it with and just do something really simple, without welding, and use that for the instructable

Welcome to Instructables! I really like that design! Do you think you could post pictures of the design process, such as the materials, how you made it...etc? It would make this a very top notch Instructable!

author
kimroks made it! (author)kimroks2008-01-12

sorry dude, I didnt Take pictures while making it, though its really simple to make, the pictures tell you every thing, For the seat bar thingy I just used a metal tube and for the suppors I used a rectagular metal bar which I shaped with a grinder and a torch, then just weld it all together just like in the pics then coat it with Red oxide wait 24 hours and then You can paint it whatever you like, you could add some mods too, I plan on adding Pedals to make a compact bike.
