A plumber from Lincolnshire, UK, Colin Furze spent nearly three months and £400 converting the mobility scooter, adding 1997 CR125cc motocross bike engine,which was hidden under the seat, modifying the frame, and five gears and twin exhausts.
"The scooter was a bit twitchy when I was going at a high speed and it was quite uncontrollable but I managed not to crash."
He applied to Guinness to set the record and was told his scooter would have to travel at least 61.4mph and still look like a commercial mobility scooter.
"I was told I could modify the engine but I wasn't allowed to change the appearance in any way so I couldn't give it bigger wheels or make it more stable.
"I initially tried experimenting with battery power but I only got to about 30mph and the batteries died really quickly so I knew then it would have to be petrol powered."
"I was worried it would be a real death trap to drive but it's not too bad when you get used to it."
