History of Motorized/Electric Scooters – September 27, 2019

As I mentioned in this post – Scooters, Scooters Everywhere – September 27, 2019, I found a few articles on the history of motorized scooters. They have been around since 1915: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoped although they fell out of favor early on and stopped being made a few years later.

This article doesn’t even cover the earliest scooter, but talks about a number of later  scooters that aren’t mentioned most other places.
