First time I had ever seen a conversion like this on a scooter. I wish I could of gotten a picture from the side. I think it is a silver wing.

I whited out the plate. It is on the back above the tail lights. Just figured it was not my place to leave it on there.

Looks like he took the rear acle off a 4 wheeler and grafted it on the scooter, with mayne wheels and tires from a trailer.

That is what I think to. It was chain drive with the chain in the middle like a sport 4 wheeler would have. It looks home grown. I wish I could have gotten a pick from more of the side. It was long a for a scooter.

I meant axle and maybe wheels from a trailer.

I saw a bunch of this type of scooter in Florida. They apparently rent them to fat ugly people with no balance.

I though you could if you add lights and turn signals? No different from people turning sport bikes into quads as terrible as it sounds.

Except for the licensing and registration part.

I think it's crazy you can get a v8 trike legalized, but add a wheel and it's heresy

There is a street legal ”quad” legal in 17 states including Texas. Custom Motor Sports has them
