Drama on a rural Chinese road. A white Bentley Bentayga SUV without license plates crashed into an electric scooter. Happily nobody got hurt. The Bentley was driven by a young woman on shiny high heeled shoes. She can be seen inspecting the damage on her bumper. The electric scooter was driven by a somewhat older woman wearing black shoes, and sporting a sporty short haircut.

An electric scooter with a Louis Vuitton mudflap, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing by Reader Joachim C., thank you for the photo! The flap, a rather large example, is attached to the back of the frame covering the rear wheel, and almost hits the ground. Fuzzily, the Louis Vuitton lettering and logo, while correct in color and kind, is printed upside down on the flap. Still, it loox very luxurious. Flaps like these go for about 50 yuan in China, and they come with every print imaginable. The anti-cold wind quilt covering the front of the scooter, keeping the legs and arms warm, is also very hip, in purple with a white and red alphabet.

A very inventive home-made vehicle seen in the great city of Shantou in Guangdong Province. The vehicle consist of two electric scooters welded together with a steel sub frame. The driver sits in the middle, race car style, and changes direction with a large steering wheel that replaces both scooter steers. Best if all is the roof. Rain indeed ruins many a fine scooter ride! The roof slopes down and so multifunctions as a giant wing for extra down force. Great invention!, drive safe…

Most Chinese families have only one child, and many Chinese families only have a scooter for transportation. A standard scooter however isn’t designed for safely transporting small children or babies. One father from the great city of Qinzhou in Guangxi Province decided to do make his families’ electric scooter much safer.

Henan again… Here we have a very fancy home-made super stretched scooter, big enough to transport five people in a very comfortable way. Look at those three seats in the middle section, better than my sofa indeed! The frame is extended by with simple steel bars, a very cost effective way to work. It seems to be patrol powered with the wires for the accelerator and brake hanging around a bit under the sofa. Is not dangerous. Via: MyHenan.
