the timber

Timber used in this project is: 50x40 for runner boards, handlebar and handlebar uprights; 75x50 for the neck and a piece of 18mm plywood for the platform deck. 50x40 wood usually machines (dresses, planes or gauges) down to approx 43x35.
Pine is a typical timber that can be used for this project. Untreated timber can be used if the scooter is to be stored mainly indoors. If the scooter is to be left outside, choose a timber that has a natural resistance to decay (i.e. doesn't rot easily). Your local timber supplier can advise you on the best available options. If you cannot purchase wood in the sizes stated above, then near enough will do but remember if the thickness of the wood changes, so must the length of the relevant bolts!

Take notice of the drawings below and then follow the step-by-step instructions that come after. You can also go to helpful stuff for more helpful tips.
