This section is for all the Go-Peds and Scooters, Technically it's not quite a "PocketBike" but some of the parts and engines are really close if not the same, so here we go!

Some stickies will be added shortly.

Nice, that Briggs and Stratton (?) looks like it would be a handful!

I was looking at one (the evo or something) that has a cool little 2-speed which seems like a pretty cool idea...

Thanks for getting this section off to a GOOD start Cam!

yea all these pics are old and out dated, ive remodled all my peds and need to do a nice photoshoot of the collection together.

the first pic is of my skopod60, a $1000+ engine. the exhaust is the notorious team gonads (TGN) X-Can its the total opposite of a ada stalker can. this thing was obnoxious to say the least. the only reason i used it was due to me not having my pipe manifold and bracket system setup yet and i was just eager to ride my 62cc motor. the x can sounds deep and popy and is louder than any pipe end blead and un silenced. it sounds almost like if u ran no exhaust at all but twice with the 2 holes. i now have that giant x can on piston port 52cc tl-52 clone motor. sounds the same as it did on the 60

No problem Nick...............As a matter of fact the scooter with the Briggs was quite a handful to ride....so much I turned it into a mini-minibike.lol



My newest homemade scooter build-up has a worked 3 port cag engine with CVT transmission which is pretty close to a 2 speed...................

Nice work on the bottom frame for your scooter, CAM2 ... that looks really slick.

Kevin, nice selection of scooters you have there. I especially like the polished aluminum decks.

Well, hell, since I'm here, might as well post up a couple of my own scooters. All of them are Kragen Zoomas, 33cc, mainly in stock configuration.

Matched pair for me and the g/f to go riding on:





Both of the scooters are geared a little differently. Mine (the stand-up version) will out-accelerate hers, and has a freewheel on the rear wheel so it will coast easier. On a long run, hers will eventually outrun mine, as the gearing is taller. Eventually I plan on switching the rear wheel on hers to a freewheel. I also added the seat and built up a small luggage rack out of a griddle.

Currently, I don't have a picture of my third Zooma, but I did something interesting with it. I managed to get ahold of an electric Zooma a while back, but the electrics were fried, and I had no idea of where to start. Everything else was good, though, so I saved the scooter for another project down the line. When I picked up another gas Zooma, I noticed that the rear ends of the scooters were all held on the same way, by a shock absorber and a big pivot at the end of the frame. Hmmm ... what if I switched the front ends around ....? A couple of hours later, the front end of the electric Zooma scooter was mated to the rear end of the gas Zooma. The deck is held on by four bolts with wingnuts, and the storage space underneath whree the battery used to reside now holds small tools and parts for both the scooter and my pocketbikes. It works great as a pit vehicle.

Oh, yeah, while I'm thinking of it .... the wheels used on this build were also Kragen Zooma wheels.

Thanks Spyguy.........Unused bicycles make great tubing donors;-especially the older Schwinn and Ross bicycles

Tomorrow Im gonna throw on a deck and take it to a 1/2 mile hill thats on a 40 degree incline without an engine to see how it handles before adding power...........

Those scooters look pretty............The scooter for the g/f has a Robin 4 stroke engine.....with the right mods and tuning that thing could have a ton of bottomend aswell....They use those engines on the new more modern kiddie racing karts

Believe it or not, that scooter was used by a college girl here in Arizona who literally only used it going back and forth to classes. The rest of the time, it was parked in her apartment. All it needed was a fresh shot of gas, one pump on the Walbro primer bulb, and the engine fired up good and strong. And she only wanted fifty bucks for it !!!!
