Electric Snow Scooter

Dane Kouttron’s goal was to design and build a cheap, light electric scooter that could take him everywhere he needs to go in any weather. After 18 months and $360 in parts, the MK-1 fulfills all of those requirements.

Mr. Kouttron can pop off the front wheel (and brake) and replace it with a ski.

It’s a great project, though Mr. Kouttron notes that he’d like to replace the electronic brakes with mechanical brakes and add a suspension system.  I would also suggest adding some sort of amphibious mode, especially one that offers submersible transportation. If you want to make a vehicle truly all-weather, this could be helpful.
