You and your inner-city commuting. Stan Mott rode his go-kart around the world:

Stan Mott Page 2

"The only recorded instance of a gokart being driven around the world was a circumnavigation by Stan Mott of New York, who drove a Lambretta-engined 175-c.c. Italkart wIth a ground clearance of two inches, 23,300 land miles through 28 countries from February 15, 1961, to June 5, 1964, beginning and finishing in New York."
Reverse? A cordless drill motor and a skateboard wheel.

Here's a more complete screengrab on the electric motor:

A cheap knock-off of this and an Open Revolt controller would fit in that VW Nils, or even a KR500.
