Want your own Segway for under a 100 dollars?
This is an electric scooter made with a used car battery (junk yard $20) and two electric car heater fan motors (junk yard $10). Wheels, brakes and steering components were taken from kids bikes bought at Salvation Army for $5 each. Throttle response is a PWM from ebay ($50). Yep, entire project was under $100.
Then there is the drill bike! Pretty nice looking and unique bike.
Nothing like getting around on different devices without utilizing gas. Old electric motors can be used in so many ways. These two are just the tip of the iceberg. If you are a DIYer, you certainly can figure out how to do this. I am sure that the inventors are more than will to talk about their achievements.
So, which bike would you rather have? I know, it is hard to decide…
