This Mobility Scooter Can Reach 69 MPH

Colin Furze, a plumber in Stamford, UK, altered a mobility scooter. Thanks to a 125 cc motorbike engine, it can now go 69 MPH:

He added: ‘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. 'I initially tried experimenting with battery power but I only got to about 30mph and the batteries died really quickly so I knew then it would have to be petrol powered.

Furze's next goal is to take the scooter up to 70 MPH on a racetrack. Link via technabob | Photo: Geoff Robinson Photography/Daily Mail
