The speed of the scooter is controlled by a speed controller and a hall effects throttle the brake is also tied into the speed control so when brake level is pulled the motor power is cut .Forward and reverse is controlled by the switch on the control pod and two relays under the floor.Tires are solid rubber from tractor supply. Speed control ,throttle lever,brake lever and key switch are from electricscooterparts.com The motor and battery meter is from Ebay.I have about $300.00 in parts that I purchased most of the other stuff was just laying around.
