    As per above I have an old broken electric scooter, just a thought if I can remove motor hub n battery so I can use it as a non electric kick scooter for bit of exercise? I prefer the comfort and pneumatic wheels

    Thanks for ur input in advance

    Don't see why not.

    When I used to get the train there were one or two using manual adult scooters.

    Sorry I was referring to electric scooter if it can be converted back to a manual scooter

    I don't have one but logic dictates that something connects the motor to the wheels to drive them.
    Remove that and the wheels will spin freely.

    Yes you can but just be aware that electric scooters are alot heavier than manual scooters. You also need to check the braking system that the wheels arent electronically brake assisted too

    I know. I said I don't see why not. Maybe if you gave the model name and number people could have a look and see if there any issues with that model.

    I’m not sure any scooter is really designed to be driven by your hands.
