Default A crazy mans idea brought to life. 33cc to 212cc stand up scooter

I rebuilt this using goped and bladez scooter parts (both high quality scooter companys made in usa. Any way as you can see, I came with a 33cc motor, but It definatly needed some more omph. So I solved the problem

Thanks man, I used to ride scooters from age 12 all the way untill I was 19. They were my first experience with motors before I had a license, So they will always have their special spot in my garage, regardless of age. But anyhow, the torque and acceleration is far more than expected. Its actually very difficult to control with all that throttle response. I used some steel spacers under the engine so theres almost a 1/4 inch of clearence between the engine and tire

Have you got insurance? How 'bout a Last Will And Testament? Cool engine swap. Don't die.

Maybe the scooter will become more stable if you extend the wheelbase and board about a foot?

Also, is that the stock rear sprocket? If so, I think it could stand to be reduced to about half the amount of teeth, considering the 33cc probably has a redline twice as high as the 212. That would tune down the throttle response and torque.
