1st is going 2 be hard fitting the engine on there. the scooter is so small. than how would you put a sprocket on the little tire and axil. and how would mount it. it will be a hard job to do. near imposible 2 do

It actually is possible to do, very hard, but, anything can be possible. First of all ur gonna have to be able to weld. The first thing u must do is weld an engine mount on (I would say) the left side. An engine mount can be anything (two little bars u can bolt the engine to would work just fine). Then make something similar to this on the other side where you will mount ur gas tank. A gas tank is simple to make, or u could just buy one or heck, use the one on the weed eater (note: u don't want to leave the gas tank connected to the engine because it will make one side heavier than the other and i suggest using at least a one liter tank to somewhat even it out. When everything is mounted ur gonna want to set up what is called a "spindle tyre" gear system. What this does is have a bar (small and round about the size of ur pointer finger) connected to the engine, spinning backwards while at the same time touching the razor wheel pushing it forwards. This design is quite similar to that used in the professionally made Go-Ped scooters. Make sure to leave enough room to fit your foot in and be able to use the brake. (Also if the spindle (little bar) doesn't grip the wheel right, try glueing some griptape or sandpaper to the bar.) Good Luck and have fun!

If I read the question correctly you are wanting info on how to motorize a Razor type scooter? If thats the case or you just want to see some really sweet minichoppers made from a Razor scooter and a weedeater motor check out Minichopper Information & Builders Forum at we have all kinds of custom minibikes and information for the home builder. I have made 3 so far using gas engines and go kart parts, they are real fun to ride also.
