I bought my daughter a 50cc quad bike for her birthday (will be converted to buggy so its a bit safer for her), but this looks like the a very good starting point for a slightly more docile 'learner' car for her... will be going for electric motivation though I think.
Though I do also have a 600cc fuel injected motor from a R6 in the shed, could make an interesting combination - though possibly not with the daughter driving.

Yep, I picked up one of the frames, plus 2 sets of wheels.
There is still 2 frames and 3 wheels there.
If anyone ends up grabbing a frame I'm sure we could do a deal on a set of wheels if you required them - I just didn't want to leave them there as they are too good to risk getting scrapped if no-one claimed them.
Will have a closer look at it tonight and chuck up a few pics, but it looks like they are only really missing the batteries and the motor/rear axle assembly.
A control box (most likely ESC, as it has a large cast heatsink) is still fitted to each, as is all of the front suspension/steering assembly- they even have tail lights.
Scooters are now pretty much all stripped - went down today and got the last 2 ESC's, all of the suspension/steering components and a few other random goodies.
It would be great if there was some way you could set up a webcam or something and point it and a corner of the workshop where any interesting stuff like this gets put when it comes in... No doubt heaps of other cool stuff goes through to scrap metal - there was some kind of stainless conveyor system I saw in there the other day but looks like it is gone already =(
