Electric scooters can be pimped by following this easy step by step guide. You can modify your electric scooter in the same way as the car re-design show “Pimp My Ride” from your own home and on a budget. Once you have replaced the handlebars and wheel hubs, the hard work is done. You can install new bearings and bolt kits in a matter of minutes with an Allen key while grip tape and stickers can be applied in no time at all. By following a few simple steps, you can pimp out your electric scooter and give it an exciting new look.
Replace your old worn out wheel hubs with new aluminum wheel hubs. This will have the same effect as adding alloys to a car, and the hubs come in different styles and colors.
Invest in some new bolts and bearings. Once you have replaced your wheels, the existing bearings will look old and boring. Purchase new bearings and a new bolt kit to match your new wheels.
Change the handlebars and grips. Swap out the stock handlebars for some new, brightly colored handlebars and replace the old grips with new ones to match. Try a radical red or dark purple color to really make your scooter stand out.
Replace the existing seat material with new fabric. If the original seat cover looks dull and worn, try replacing it with some leather or even fake snakeskin to bring it into line with your new design. You don't have to remove the original material; simply stretch the new fabric over the seat and secure it underneath with staples or an adhesive spray.
Accessorize your scooter. Personalize your electric scooter by replacing the standard black grip tape with a different design. Hazard, camouflage or checkered grip tape will add to your scooter's exciting new look. Use stickers and attachable lights for your scooter. Lights can be easily secured to the frame of the handlebars with cable ties.
