He looks like somebody tricked him into riding it.

I think you may mean a scooter

BTW, is it standard for jetskis to come in the most garish color combinations? Are most jetski paint scheme designers colorblind?

Hope he doesn’t have to stop…

Perhaps a water jet in the back to give it a rooster tail?

That sea-doo cowling is from about 1988, so yeah. This links to a page that shows an advert for SCUBA wetsuits from about the same era:

Motorcycle? Snorfiets, more like.

I followed the link-trail but I couldn’t find any info on the donor bike/scooter.
I’d agree that it’s probably an automatic scooter, which would make the build a little easier.

The real challenge would be making one that still works on water too!

As someone who once owned one for wakeboarding, visibility is valuable when you’re surrounded by drunk boaters. That said, some of the color schemes are more retina-searing than others.
