Here you will find all the parts you need to build your very own custom scooter. These are the same parts, which you use to upgrade and maintain your scooter.

- Bars for scooters are used for steering. On the scooter it is called the bar and connected to the front fork. The size and width of the bar depends on your height and your personal preferences. You can learn more about bars in this guide.
