the instructions

If all the holes are drilled in the right place, The scooter should be a piece of cake to assemble.
Please note:   If any of the parts or members you have obtained to use in this project vary in size from the parts listed, then adjustments may possibly be required to bolt lengths and other measurements.

1 Measure, cut, drill and lay out
Cut all the pieces of wood to the lengths as shown in the previous page. Carefully measure and mark the center of where all the holes are to be drilled. Next, drill the holes.

Note that there are two different hole sizes.
The holes for the axle bolts and for the bolts that fasten the runners [a] to the neck [c] are 1/2" holes. All the other holes are 1/4" diameter.

Lay all the pieces out on the floor.

2 Assemble the handlebar

Use the picture for reference.

3 Assemble the front wheels
Assemble the front wheels using a 1/2" bolt as the axle. Place a washer on each side of each wheel and making sure that the axle assembly is loose enough to allow the wheels to turn freely, use two nuts tightened against each other to form 'lock nuts'.
This will ensure that the axle assembly does not vibrate loose with constant movement.

Also place two eye bolts in the appropriate holes in the steering upright [e].
