what to do with most of a 36v scooter? Answered
so i rescued this 36v 500w electric scooter from the trash. the charger with it was broken so i scored one off ebay for $9. i charged it up and it actually worked but for the most part was useless to me as it was too slow for me but at the same time too fast and unstable for my kids. so it sat next to my house for several months and when i charged it up today and turned it on the speed control burnt up(ants had built a nest inside and shorted it). so now i have everything else which is still good(motor, batteries, frame and wheels etc) and seems a shame to waste it. i could buy a new speed control off ebay for $25 but like i said it wasnt very useful as it was. any ideas for what to use these parts for without a speed controller? some thoughts i had were electric bike or electric mower. i also have some powerwheels laying around just begging to be hot rodded. also if anyone in the charlotte nc area can have it if you promise to build something cool out of it.
