Junkyard Scooter



The "Quicksilver" is a retro-future scooter made from appliances and scrap metal.


I am a metal sculptor, and have absolutely no experience with scooters at all. What follows in this instructable is my experience of stripping down a mid 1980's Honda elite 125cc scooter, and totally redesigning it with aluminum scrap metal. For the curious, please visit my web site: www.nemomatic.com to get a look at my other work and see how this beast fits into the bigger picture.

Not sure why you would do that. I own a Honda Elite 250cc and it kicks!! Honda stopped shipping +200 cc scooters to Canada in the late 80s so it is also kind of rare.

This bike is nice, but weighs more than the original fiberglass. With one person I would guess top speed 70 clicks. Hard to compete with traffic at those speeds. Nice idea though.
