Our friends RadBrad and KoolKat, from Atomic Zombie, posted this cool SpinScooter build on Make: Projects. Besides the fact that it requires welding (if you can do this, maybe a friend can), it’s fairly simple project, and the result is a wacky mutant bike build that would is a challenge to ride and to master.

    The big front wheel reminds me of an Amish scooter. I’m surprised I don’t see more people using them. Google “Amish scooter” for pictures.

    Interesting design!
