Electric Scooter
Our new electric scooter is smaller and weighs much less than other electric scooters on the market. The 40-in. long rig rides on two 9-in. high, 3 1/2-in. wide pneumatic wheels and weighs only 66 lbs. with a built-in 12-volt battery. The battery belt-drives the rear wheel and comes with a built-in charger. There are only two controls - the throttle on the right handle and the hand brake on the left handle. By removing a pin the scooter can be folded down to a height of only 12 in., allowing it to fit easily into a car trunk.
  It's simple to operate and also a lot of fun because there's no noise, odors, or smoke. The foot platform is only 5 in. off the ground, making it easy to get on and off. If you want you can pull the seat out and drive it standing up. Top speed is 14 to 15 mph. The battery mounts under the foot platform and quickly snaps in or out. You can go about 10 miles before the battery has to be recharged.
  Available in red, blue, yellow or white. Options include an extra battery, headlights, and a carrier basket. Sells for $950 plus S&H. (Great Plains Products, Inc., Box 329, Concordia, Mo. 64020 ph 660 463-7223; fax 7158)
