Gavin Scooter "Preservation" Society..... that cant be a good sign. When are they officially Vintage?

I've thought about doing the lithium pack in one of mine. I'm still weighing the cost, its pretty pricey.
They have been vintage for about a decade now.

The problem with a lithium pack is:
1) the brush board can't tolerate long runs of an hour+ so a huge pack isnt worth making
2) the tube is so giant you need a heavy battery or you need lead. You can cut down the long or magnum tubes to a short and still have tons of runtime - but you still have a really heavy scooter.

Man, mine are very old, they came with the white PVC tube pipe bodies. I repainted them when I first got them. There's not way the working on has a motor newer then 2008. I think they guy that i got them for estimated they where from the late 90s early 2000s.
