Video: tech modifies mobility scooter to reach 60mph
Raye said he went to Church on his scooter after a successful Sunday morning test run.

Technician, Raye Watts replaced the battery on an old charity shop mobility scooter with a motorbike engine.

A passing motorist captured Raye’s test drive on camera and recorded speeds of up to 60mph.

Raye said: “I like building things and I’ve always wanted to do this.

“I was donated the mobility scooter by a charity shop and put an off-road motorcycle engine in it that was sitting in my shed.

“I expected 35-40 mph and was very surprised when it reached 60.”
