The 86V electric scooter project began as an effort to convert a downhill scooter (Dellemann  www.scootboard.net ) to a electric powered scooter.  
 
Downhill scooters, commonly referred to as TrottiBikes in Switzerland, are used on ski-slopes (and access roads) in the summer.  They're available at many cable-car or train stations to rent in all alpine regions. You take a cable car or train up an alp, and scoot down.  This effort is to allow electric hub-motor braking, regenerating power, as well as providing a electrical means of transport.  
 
Advantages of a Scooter:
 
The scooter is more advantageous over bikes because of their compact size, and ability to travel in less dimensional space than regular bikes.  While the scooters are stand-up versions, their simplicity make up for any small discomforts compared to sit-down versions of transportation.  Unlike a Segway, these scooters are inexpensive, simple to use, maintain and repair.  
 
Lithium Ion Power:
 
For power, a battery pack is placed in a backpack which the user wears.  The battery pack is comprised of a series of Milwaukee V28 Lithium Ion Batteries.  The resulting power is fantastic in terms of performance, and very lightweight.
