The Ugears Moto Compact folding scooter with spring mechanism is a clever addition to the family of our wooden two-wheel model kits. For many young people, a scooter is their first form of motorized transport. It symbolizes freedom, mobility and a fun way to get to school, various activities or your first job. It's your ticket out of the neighborhood you grew up in to explore the world that lies beyond. Feel that feeling of youthful freedom when assembling this elegant little folding scooter.

Scooters became popular when Gregory Peck rode Audrey Hepburn around Rome on his iconic Vespa (“wasp” in Italian) in the 1952 film “A Heart and a Crown.” While scooters were largely considered fashion toys in car-crazy North America, they remained an important form of transportation in many parts of the world, particularly Europe, Asia and Latin America.

For its size, the 3D puzzle folding scooter Moto Compact packs a lot of power. The wooden model is powered by a spring-loaded motor and can travel up to 2 m with a single winding. The handlebars can be rotated to three different positions to send your scooter straight ahead or into a left or right turn. Since it's a Ugears model and we like to pack as much mechanical action as possible into our DIY wooden models, the Moto Compact has some impressive features. This includes front and rear suspension as well as a sophisticated folding mechanism to ensure easy and safe transport.

To fold your Moto Compact scooter, hold the front and rear parts and push them together. The handlebars are also folded in this way. You can then put the folded scooter in your bag and take it with you. You can also place it on its stand, which folds down on the left side of the model.

To get your scooter moving, gently pull the front and rear parts apart, which will also move the handlebars up. Push the driver's seat down to engage the "stop" mechanism. Now you can wind up the motor using the knob on the right side of the model. Fold up the stand and lower the small guide wheels at the bottom to ensure balance. Place the scooter on the floor or other flat surface and hold it gently while pushing down the rear passenger seat, which serves as the "Start" button. This causes the driver's seat to move up and the main gear to engage - then all you have to do is quickly let go and watch your scooter whiz away! If it stops and you want to start it again, just repeat this cycle.

The folding scooter Moto Compact will delight all lovers of two-wheeled vehicles: bicycles, scooters, mopeds and motorcycles. The Moto Compact is another member of our family of DIY wooden motorcycle models, which includes the Motorcycle (a classic cruiser) and the Scrambler (a travel enduro). Are there any children (or outgrown children) in your family or circle of friends who like motorcycles? The Moto Compact folding scooter is a great gift idea for her next birthday or any other occasion. The Moto Compact from Ugears contains 192 parts, is one of the medium difficulty kits and is an exciting DIY project that presents a moderate challenge for model builders or families who want to work on it together.
