Scoot around town with ease in this Amish Scooter. This version is a scooter-bicycle hybrid and it combines the best of both worlds. A powder-coated steel frame and fenders will stand up to all sorts of bumps and bruises while 16-inch wheels will get you to your destination almost as quickly as a regular bike. There’ll be little to no balance or knee strain issues, yet it’s large enough to tote around a bag of groceries. Plus, it won’t look like you stole a kid’s scooter, which is important for your reputation. A Pennsylvania-based Amish family has been manufacturing these for three generations; they invented the scooter as an alternative to a bicycle, which their church does not allow.
