DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) – Mechanic C.J. Surratt is getting a lot of attention these days with his newest creation: a scooter dressed like a Sea-Doo.

“It’s a boater cycle,” Surratt said. “It does not go on water. It will not float anymore.”

He got the idea from a video his kids found on TikTok.

“It’s a legal scooter with a body it,” he said. “I put a jet ski body on it. I use hand signals and got a brake light.”

Surratt built the boatercycle just for fun and to get his wife to enjoy riding and his kids involved in building it.
