Isle of Man – Mobility Scooter speed record (2014)
Luxury mobility scooters are typically set to a maximum speed of 8mph, however, David Anderson and Mathew Hine recently featured in the Guinness Book of World Records after the mobility scooter they built clocked speeds of 107mph.
The Guinness World Record set guidelines on the challenge, stating that the scooter must look traditional and be built on a platform that is commercially available. They did however allow for several parts to be modified, including the engine, causing the pair to use a Days Strider – converting it into the worlds fastest mobility scooter.
David & Mathew stripped down the scooter and equipped it with a cart chassis along with a Suzuki 600cc Bandit engine.
The record speed was recorded from an average during a 402m distance.
