How to build an electric mobility scooter? Answered

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.
