    I saw and actually have a video of some Italian dude wheelieing a scooter at like 70mph or maybe faster. It sounds like a friggin YZ80, and is faster than shit! What is it? Isn't there only onoe fast small scooter? Fill a brotha in, I want one! I allways said If they make a scooter I can wheelie, I'll buy it!

    Power wheelie? Or, circus performer who could balance one at speed? Whatever it was, it probably isn't legal in the U.S.. Italjet made a 180cc 2t but it was never sold stateside and is out of production (i think) all of which makes me want one.

    There are a bunch of 'em out there....everything from classics that have been hot-rodded to 180cc speedsters...just about every flavor you can think of that a gearhead can get ahold of... :lol3

    I've got a kitted Stella that'll hoist the front wheel easily.

    But I have no wheelie skillz. :cry

    I've got a Dragster 180 2t. Stock except for lighter rollers and heavier contra spring. I've had it up to as fast as 91 mph. As for wheelies it needs to be kitted with a 172 kit and bigger carb. Otherwise I have not seen a scooter yet that can perform like this scoot.
