So a few weeks ago I ordered a scooter off eBay for $560. It looks similar to the ecoreco and vomo scooter just a bit uglier. I bought it to get around San Francisco to and from work. I really wanted a vomo and sent them some emails and never got a response so that scared me a bit. I also didn't want to wait 2 months to receive it so I went with the knock off. It was quite an ordeal because the seller gave me the wrong tracking number and there was a delay because of the Chinese holiday. Long story shorts the scooter showed up almost two weeks late, that was problem #1. Upon closer inspection I noticed the scooter didn't have disc brakes,and the battery wasn't a Samsung battery like the listing said. The battery was dead so I tried to charge it and the plug for the charger wasn't for American outlets. So I sent a very pissed off email to the seller and demanded a partial refund. With the refund I ended up only paying $300 for the scooter so I'd say it was a steal. I rode it around the block and really want to boost performance. It's a 250w scooter and performs like one lol. I'm thinking of selling the 36v battery and charger and getting 12s lipos in there. I also want to get a better controller and throttle. Those are the pricier mods I have planned. I've already removed the seat and some hideous trim that was on the deck. I going to eventual make a new deck out of a lighter material like wood or aluminum, but I'll probabl just add grip tape for now. The bars on this thing are ugly as hell and super long so I'm going to cut the top off and add a stem and drag bar from a bicycle. I have a few pics but will post more soon. Let me know what you guys think!
