While sorting out the scooter picture I found this hat that must have been made 6/8 years ago, how time flies. It may be of use to some with a bit of modification.

Any chance of a front view of the scooter - or do we just make it up?
(Great scooter by the way! Looking forward to doing it tomorrow)
Thanks
Lisa

Okay...here is my version of the scooter. I forgot the brake on the back though...oops. I moved the handlebars back a little on the 2nd picture. I also made a version of the scooter hat...I really like that one, thanks for sharing it!

I'm not happy with it.

The rear wheel attachment is not very sold, and rear light not right.

Also I wanted a headlamp in the handlebars, but was lost for inspiration.

I think you could put a headlight on the front very easily. What if you, on the center balloon, made a bubble from the top about 6" long, and attached a headlight there? You could put a pinchtwist on the inside to hold it in place (maybe 2 if one is not sturdy). Did that make sense?
I can't see the rear light, so I can't give you any ideas there. I think it is a very good design. Has a lot of potential :-)
