Price starts with the 16" scooters and incrementally increases as larger sizes are selected by using the drop down boxes. 

Purpose of the Kick Scooter

Amish scooter sizes approach that of a bike and because of the similarity, they are sometimes called  a "kick bike" or "foot bike." Riding one is similar to riding a bike, except that the rider stands on a low floorboard, rather than perches on a high seat, and propels it by kicking instead of pedaling.

Like standard bikes, Amish scooters are designed to carry a single rider at a reasonable speed,  with or without a small amount of goods in an optionally-attached wire basket.

Riders can enjoy gliding aboard these fun riding scooters that are available in models with 16”, 20”, 24/24 and  24/20” wheels
 
Speed – moderate or fast!
 
Our Amish kick scooters are not equipped with a speedometer, so it is up to each rider to determine his or her own "reasonable speed." In general, a moderate speed suggests that the rider:
  1. Can firmly touch the ground with his or her kicking foot. The inability to firmly touch.
  2. the ground indicates that the kick scooter is traveling faster than kicking speed.
  3. Use brakes wisely for speed control. A  front bicycle-style lever brake and a back "stomp" brake is standard equipment. Use devices to maintain riding speed. They should not, however, be considered as the means to execute an emergency stop as a last resort as the kick scooter may skid or flip.
  4. Use brakes for short periods. The kick scooter's standard bike brakes, for example, help slow it down when traveling downhill. Extended application of the brakes, however, can cause surfaces to heat up excessively, cause wear, and when accidentally touched, cause skin burns. Walk the kick scooter down very steep, long, downhill routes.
  5. Understands the difference between emergency situations on a kick scooter and a bicycle. In the event of an emergency, bike riders tend to get tangled in their equipment, or are thrown over the handlebars. Kick scooter riders, however, can let go of their vehicle and step or jump off the almost ground level floorboard at the same time. 
  6. Race with care! Our kick scooters are designed to be ridden conventionally more than competitively. Racing, of course, requires that the rider thoroughly understands his or her vehicle and scrupulously checks all aspects of it before each ride.
Riding Surfaces and Stability
 
Like bicycles, our kick scooters can be ridden on sidewalks or roads over a number of surfaces. These include concrete, hard asphalt, packed block, and packed/groomed earth. Loose gravel and stone-filled roadways should be avoided. To retain stability, avoiding riding in the rain and/or through puddles. Do not ride over wet vegetation such as leaves (they are slippery and can hide objects such as large stones, glass, and branches), or over any surface that is oily slick and/or soft.
 
Conditions to Avoid
 
Our kick scooters are designed to hold a single rider, with no additional rider sharing the floorboard, or sitting on the handlebars. It is not built to be ridden off-road on un-groomed paths, used for stunts, such as being aloft or spinning, or be ridden recklessly without controlled speed. Night riding can be done, however, it requires that the rider wears proper reflective garments, plus has a head and tail light on the kick scooter. 

Scooters are shipped dimensional weight. Slightly unassembled for shipping.
 
Optional battery operated headlight and taillights feature LED low energy use bulbs. Cat Eye Head Light featuring 3 LEDs. The unit can easily be removed and used as a flashlight. Dual selection of steady on or flashing. Tail Light features 6 red  flashing LEDs.
 
Optional safety flag comes with easy mounting bracket to attach to rear wheel lug. Features a bright orange pennant flag on a 59" tall fiberglass rod.
 
Optional kick stand mounts on rear wheel lug.

*  Recommended weight capacity is based on actual use by the Amish.  Always use good judgment when riding as regular riding rough terrain can cause more impact pressure . 
Maintenance
 
Cleaning: Use a damp cloth to clean your kick scooter and avoid aggressive scrubbing or soaking. Avoid riding through salt, as it can dull surfaces. Touch up painted surfaces with a matching color available from your kick scooter dealer.

Brakes and Hand Lever: A caliper brake and related hand lever related to the front tire is standard equipment. Information on brake maintenance can be found in articles and videos on the web.  Information related to the following link www.wikihow.com/Fix-Brakes-on-a-Bike covers this subject nicely. 

Back "stomp" Brake: Check the stomp brake lever to make sure it comes in contact with the tire when pressed with a foot and that the tire does not show rough wear from using it. 

Bearings: Open sided bicycle ball bearings will require regular cleaning and lube as a regular bicycle.

Tires: Make sure that tire air valves are clean before filling tires with air. Maintain air pressure to the PSI rating on the tire sidewall. Check treads and sidewalls for wear and cracking. Understand how to remove and replace your tires, and, as a convenience, always have extra inner tubes available. Many tutorials and videos related to tire maintenance are available on the web should you need more information.

Note that use of “racing wheels and tires” on a kick scooter does not mean or imply that these scooters are built for racing.  Racing wheels and tires are made to reduce the kick scooter's overall weight and traction, and thereby make cruising easier.

Seams and Welded Joints: Establish a regular schedule to examine seams and welded joints for wear and potential cracks. This is especially important for people who regularly ride on rough surfaces and/or who are near the scooters maximum weight. 

Accidents: After an accident, a thorough equipment examination is required. Check the frame to make sure it is not bent. Check that all the seams and welded joints are firm. Check brakes and the hand brake lever to make sure all are in proper position and work. 

Helmets: Although there is no law requiring that kick scooter riders wear one, we recommend that wear well-made biking helmets.

What our customers say:

Hi Paul,

The scooter arrived Friday. It is precisely what we wanted in a scooter
for our daughter. Worth every penny! We couldn't be more pleased. I read
on your website that this model can hold up to 150 lbs., so I took it for
spin myself. Such fun! I thought the handlebars might be too low for me,
but they really aren't that bad. I am considering ordering the next size
up for myself!  Thank you for your help in placing this order and getting
the custom color. It is beautiful!

Happy Father's Day!

S. B.
