British Plumber Modifies Mobility Scooter for Speed

Some people have the need: the need for speed. Here we look at four drivers who have driven five very different modes of transport in attempts to enter the record books

Colin Furze, a British plumber, spent three months converting his machine to go nine times faster than the average mobility scooter, which is 13kph. The petrol-powered scooter has a 125cc motorbike engine, five gears and twin exhausts. He is now looking to formally enter the speedy scooter into the record books: “I was told by Guinness that I could modify the engine but I wasn’t allowed to change the appearance in any way, so I couldn’t give it bigger wheels or make it more stable.” Guinness told Furze he has to exceed 100kph.

I decided right then that there had to be a better way; something that provided for convenient transportation, but at a lower cost.

What kind of mileage can I expect? How much do good quality transportation scooters cost?

Here are a few tips I learned to avoid poorly manufactured electric and mobility scooters: Continue reading
