Christmas present for my grandson. My own design based on hours of surfing the internet for ideas. Since Santa is on a budget this year, decided to keep it relatively inexpensive. Used poplar for the frame and 125mm scooter wheels. The finish is beeswax and oil. The seat height as set is 11” but is adjustable. He will get a helmet too!
