    I was at the river and I saw this guy with an electric dirtbike... It was one of those dirtbike frames that you see housing a 5 hp lawnmower style engine... witwh the tires less than a foot in diameter but it had a car battery sitting there rather than the engine! Has anyone ever heard of building these and cant it be done super cheaply since that style of dirtbike is super cheap?

    You could just buy one


    but I think the term for that style of frame is mini-bike

    You could just purchase an electric scooter and upgrade it. Those are pretty bad about the batteries going out. There used to be a fad with people selling them all along the sides of the road to children
