RYOBI POWERED GOCART

I found this gocart at a garage sale with no battery's or charger, for a good deal. it will run from 12 to 24 volts, so i toke my ryobi flashlight apart and wired it into the cart. it also did not have reverse so i taped into the wires and added a toggle switch to control the direction. the nice thing is my kids dont have to wait for a battery to charge, cause i always have a few 18v battery's charging. the wires look messy but i am going to wire loom them.
