Description:

Got a great deal on this scooter so that my son has something fun to ride while waiting for the eRex to be complete. Built like a tank and tons of torque - climbs steep hills without hesitation even with me on it! Got me interested in building one for myself - but I want a 48V, 1200W powertrain and a bigger deck - might have to build my own chassis.

Re: The "eShark"

This is a nice plat toy for small children as this will provide them fun of riding it and also develop a feel of self dependent on them.Generally people don't prefer to give such toys to their children as because they feel insecure for their children but I must say that this is an adventurous sports for small kids.
