Build Your Own Electric Ice Chest Scooter: A Step-by-Step Guide

With rising temperatures and a desire for convenience, electric ice chest scooters are becoming a popular way to keep your beverages cool while on the go. These unique vehicles not only provide a comfortable and fun mode of transportation but also offer a practical solution for carrying drinks, snacks, and even ice. In this article, we will walk you through the steps required to build your own electric ice chest scooter from the ground up.

Step 1: Gather the necessary tools and materials

To begin, you will need the following items:

  • An electric scooter (preferably with a sturdy frame and a reliable motor)
  • An ice chest or cooler with a flat top, large enough to hold your desired cargo
  • A sheet of plywood or other sturdy material for the platform
  • Heavy-duty industrial Velcro or straps to secure the ice chest
  • Nuts, bolts, and washers (compatible with your electric scooter)
  • A power drill
  • A jigsaw or circular saw to cut the platform
  • A tape measure

Step 2: Measure and cut the platform

Using your tape measure, measure the dimensions of your scooter and the ice chest to determine the size of your platform. Be sure to take into account wider parts such as the scooter's wheels when measuring. Once you have determined the appropriate size, use your saw to cut out your platform from the plywood.

Step 3: Attach the ice chest secures

Before attaching the platform to the scooter, you'll want to secure the ice chest first. Attach the heavy-duty Velcro or straps to the platform, positioning them so they hold the ice chest securely in place. Be sure to also consider how your feet will be placed on the scooter and be sure the ice chest won't impede your ability to ride comfortably.

Step 4: Attach the platform to the scooter

With the ice chest secured, it's time to attach the platform to the scooter. Drill holes in the platform where it will be attached to the scooter's frame. Use the nuts, bolts, and washers to secure the platform to the scooter.

Step 5: Prepare for your adventure

Your electric ice chest scooter is now complete! Be sure to give it a thorough test ride before heading out to tailgates, picnics, or other gatherings to ensure everything is secure and working properly. Enjoy the convenience and fun of your new DIY electric ice chest scooter, and impress your friends with your creative handiwork!

Now that you know how to build an electric ice chest scooter, get ready to hit the road and keep your refreshments chilled during your travels.
