Kickbike Scooter Powered by Milwaukee M28 Drill 0721-21

We have seen a few professionally made drill powered mini bikes in the past, but it is so much cooler when you can build one yourself; like Jay from Coptool did. Jay had the idea of building a drill powered vehicle and he let his inner child take over to dream it up. Jay started out with a KickBike scooter that he purchased from Amazon for around $260, this was going to be the body of his build. He chose this particular model scooter because it uses a large front wheel that adds stability. Jay also chopped up and used parts of the drive mechanism from a kids bike in his drill powered contraption. Powering the Jaymobile is a Milwaukee M28 Right Angle Drill ($369) and a Hougen 4:1 Drill Speed Reducer ($175). This combination gave Jay the power and torque he needed to get the Scooter moving, they also happen to be tools his store Ohio Power Tool had in stock, how handy. After a bit of tinkering and welding, the Jaymobile was complete and was ready for a test run. Looks like fun. Be sure to visit Cop for more photos and information on his build
