OK, I've got to say that the world speed record business might just have jumped the shark. It seems two young fellows from the Isle of Man have built a mobility scooter capable of over 100 mph!
The Telegraph reports:
In fairness, though the machine looks like a typical mobility scooter (complete with shopping basket on the front), it was built by the men from scratch using a shortened go-kart chassis and a 600cc Suzuki Bandit engine.

I must admit, I'd dearly love to see that thing roaring down the aisles at our local supermarket, scattering the People of Walmart before it in every direction . . .
