Make some electric scooters! (There's an Instructable, I'm sure. Try a search. There might be one about making them from scratch. Start there.) -OR- Remove the motors and make 4 regular scooters!

Awesome! I would weld them to a sort of frame, put all the motors in place on four corners, weld a metal chair and rig up some individual speed controls, then you would have a mini car you could steer by adjusting the motor speed! Hope I helped!
