The Gatsby Vintage Automobile Style Luxury Mobility Scooter is also not a sluggish device. It has the ability to carry a 350lb. person up to 28 miles on a single charge at a speed of 10mph.

You will also be happy to know, this device offers substantial, lockable storage at the front, so if you are heading out for the day, you can easily secure valuables along the way.
Fully Adjustable Seating
Mobility challenged individuals often find it difficult to get into and out of traditional mobility scooters. The designers of the Gatsby Vintage Automobile Style Luxury Mobility Scooter have solved this problem by adding a fully adjustable seat. The seat swivels in either direction to allow the user easy access to the mobility device.

How fast does the Gatsby Vintage go?
At full speed, you can reach 10 mph top speed.
Gatsby Vintage models have a half speed setting, for confined areas, and a full speed setting for when you want to go fast.
You will find some other brands offer scooters that go faster than this, however high quality brands put a high emphasis on safety too.
In order for a mobility scooter to go faster than around 10 mph, heavy investment must be made to ensure it stays just as safe. For this reason, the more reputable and safe a brand, the more they cap the top speed of their mobility scooters.
How long do the Gatsby Vintage batteries last per charge? How many years of use can I get out of the batteries?
Battery running time per charge is measured in miles as opposed to time i.e. how many miles can a fully charged set of batteries take the scooter?
The answer depends on the user’s weight as well as the kind of terrain the scooter is operated upon. However, manufacturers try to take an average of these factors so you can get an idea.
Gatsby is pretty honest in the figure they give, unlike other manufacturers who exaggerate and bloat their figures.
For a Gatsby with range batteries, the batteries last: 28 miles.
The lifetime of your Gatsby C batteries is approximately 2 years, but very much depends on how much you use your scooter and whether you take good care of your batteries.
The cost of replacing Gatsby Vintage batteries is approximately $300.
Note: It doesn’t matter which batteries you initially bought your scooter with, you can change whenever you want.
What kind of batteries are used in the Gatsby Vintage?
This mobility scooter generally uses gel-cell Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries.
These batteries are maintenance free, meaning you don’t need to add water to them or anything like that. They happily stay under their shroud for the duration of their lifetime and you shouldn’t need to do anything to them at all.
I’m a tall person. Will there be enough legroom for me in the Gatsby Vintage?
The distance from seat to tiller on the Gatsby Vintage is above average when compared with other scooters of this type.
You can also slide the seat right back to its furthest position and ask to have the seat post set to the highest position so your long legs have more room.
We are personally happy to recommend the Vintage to anyone up to 6’1” tall. If you are taller than this, please call us to get further information 1-888-233-5563.
How much weight can the Gatsby Vintage carry?
The weight capacity of the Gatsby Vintage mobility scooter is 350 lbs.
How big is the Gatsby Vintage? Will it fit indoors and how sharp does it turn?
The Vintage is a large mobility scooter. It measures 61” by 26”. It will fit through most front doors, but is not intended for use around the house.
You can drive it indoors to keep it safe and leave it close to the front door.
As far as stores are concerned, you can use it in large stores such as Walmart and in malls, but it may not fit in smaller supermarkets.
The Vintage has a turning radius of 75.5”.

How to Purchase & What's Included
How to Purchase & What's Included
Why is the Gatsby Vintage so expensive?
We sell all our scooters at the minimum price (MAP) the manufacturer allows us to advertise for. If we advertise for cheaper, we could be prosecuted.
This means we are cheaper or at the same price as all dealers complying with the rules.
If you find another site selling for cheaper, we will price match, so long as they are within MAP.
Scooters can be expensive because of the following reasons:
Gatsby Vintage is a premium brand that has a strong focus on top-notch luxury and very quality components.
The motors on these scooters are very powerful, they are really built to last, and the warranty policy is the best in the industry.
In addition, the recent skyrocketing of shipping prices, coupled with rising inflation, have made these scooters significantly more expensive than they were, say one year ago.
We do offer cheaper scooters by other brands, but if quality and comfort are your most important priorities, we highly recommend the Gatsby brand.
Does Medicare/Medicaid or private insurance help pay for the Gatsby Vintage?
Many heavy-duty/recreational mobility scooters do not qualify as medical devices under Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance strict rules. Though you might be disabled and using the device in a full medical sense, Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance seem to want to save as much money as they can, and do so by making the rules about which models qualify very strict.
You might have spent significant time trying to find a Medicare/Medicaid provider online, to no avail. This is because it’s actually very hard for dealers to become Medicare providers, again making it hard for patients to get free scooters, again saving the insurance money.
We don’t work with Medicare. We also do not bill private insurances directly. Some private insurances may reimburse you outside of Medicare’s framework. To check if your insurer does this, we recommend contacting them directly and asking. If they say yes, we’re happy to provide invoices/proof of purchases so you can get your money back from your insurer.
Here’s a full disclaimer with regard to Medicare/Medicaid:
Notice to Medicare/Medicaid Beneficiaries. Medicare will pay for medical equipment and supplies only if a supplier has a Medicare supplier number. Heavy Duty Mobility does not have a Medicare supplier number. Medicare will not pay for any medical equipment and supplies we sell or rent to you. You will be personally and fully responsible for payment.
What do I need to do to purchase the Gatsby Vintage scooter online/over the phone?

The shipping company will call you usually within an hour of delivery, to let you prepare yourself at the curbside nearest to your home.

Shipping, Warranty & Returns
Shipping, Warranty & Returns
How long from the time of order until I get my Gatsby Vintage mobility scooter?
This very much depends on two factors: the stock status above and how far you are from New Jersey, where most Gatsby ship out from.
Bear in mind, different colors of the same model can have different stock statuses. Also bear in mind that if you add certain customizations, these can increase the time it takes for the team to assemble your scooter at the warehouse.
The stock status for this scooter can be seen just under the product title at the top of the page.
- If an item is showing IN STOCK above, the estimated ship out time is 2-3 business days, but this can change based on the options and upgrades you choose.
Add to that transit times, usually between 2 and 6 business days, depending on your distance from New Jersey and how rural/urban your address is. (Some very rural areas take a little longer).
If an Gatsby is showing LEAD TIME with a number of weeks indicated, the estimated ship out time is that lead time plus standard ship out and transit time indicated in the paragraph above.
Please note, we have excellent relationships with our suppliers/manufacturers. If we are showing an item as having a lead time, it’s almost certainly the same for other dealers who might not have the most up-to-date information on the websites and may show the item as having a lead time.
Please note, we have excellent relationships with our suppliers/manufacturers. If we are showing an item as out of stock, it’s almost certainly the same for other dealers who might not have the most up-to-date information on the websites and may show the item as in stock.
Why are there such long lead times on some mobility scooters?
My Gatsby Vintage mobility scooter is showing a long lead time above. Why should I buy a scooter now if in any case I won’t get it right away?
Unfortunately, the way things are nowadays, with delays across the entire supply chain, if you wait until there is no lead time on your scooter, you might end up waiting forever. As soon as new stock comes in, it is assigned to orders that were already placed, sometimes weeks in advance. We don’t know how soon the situation will get better – and it may actually get worse before getting better again.
For this reason, customers are placing their orders as soon as they are able, to be placed on the list for as soon as the next scooters are ready to ship.

What happens if my order for an Gatsby Vintage mobility scooter is damaged?
- When your scooter arrives, do not sign any forms until you have opened the boxes and ascertained that everything is as it should be.
- If the external boxes are damaged, make sure to note this next to your signature. Make sure to inspect the contents before signing.
- If your scooter is damaged in a way that the entire scooter needs to be replaced, just refuse the entire delivery.
- If your scooter is damaged in a way that a spare part needs to be sent out and installed (eg a broken mirror), accept the delivery, and list any damaged items next to your signature.
- If you find damage after having signed for delivery without any damage notes, this can be really problematic as the shipping company may try to shift the blame onto you. This is why it’s important to check for damage, especially if the outside boxes are damaged.
What happens if my Gatsby Vintage mobility scooter breaks down?

Please note, it’s really important we don’t send technicians out for nothing, so to be open with you from the start, we will let you know that if a technician comes out for a problem which isn’t under warranty or was a user error, you may be charged for this visit.
