You need wires, copper wires. Maybe you've got some mains household appliance wire somewhere, that should do it. L

If you locate the scooter-motor you should be able to find two terminals that I guess other batteries connect to through a switch?
You might want to get some spade connectors and use these. Essentially you connect the car-battery where the existing battery connects, but remove that.

Oh, you'd need a motor as well - that's a different question altogether. Best idea I can think of at the moment is to find an electric wheelchair motor or similar, and use it to replace the back wheel. L

Thanks, my first thought was "that wasn't the one I saw, but it looks much better", the second "the chain's close to the ground, you'll have difficulty turning right on that!" L
