Junk 24V kick scooter

I just found a junked-out scooter in a dumpster on my lunch break!

It's the style where you just stand on it. The cover was off, and it has 2 batteries inside, so I'm assuming it's most likely a 24V system.

Even if the electronics and batteries are both shot, I would think it's a decent little permanent magnet motor and belt drive on the back.

Might make a good generator for an exercise bike generator setup. Who knows, maybe all it needs is new batteries!

I'll grab a photo for you guys later!
