Default motorized push scooter?

The scooter I had growing up looked nothing like the Razors of today. The small wheel Razor doesn't work very well on the hard New River dirt. I just fixed a neighbor's 4 stroke weed whacker (thanks to Nextdoor) and he gave me 3 non running whackers along with cash for my services. So it clicked- I want to get the old style scooter and slap one of these weed whacker motors on it for my kids to rip around the desert. I'm gonna start tinkering with these engines today to see what's what!

You will need one **** of a gear reduction for that motor.

Those all look like half crank motors...not ideal but could be made to work. Friction drive will likely be easiest solution yo gear reduction.
