Wheelman 50cc Gas Skateboard
WHAT IS THE WHEELMAN?
The Wheelman is a center mounted engine and frame vehicle, supported at each end by a spokeless wheel into which your feet can be inserted while standing upright.
The Wheelman has a 50cc 2-stroke engine which takes a mix of gas and oil just like a weed whacker.
It holds one liter of fuel and will give you a run time of over one hour or 30 miles and speeds up to 25 MPH.
The Wheelman is also known as: Bushpig, G-Wheel, Xcite Bike and G-Motion.
It was named one of Time Magazine's "Best Inventions of the Year in November, 2002"
The Wheelman has also been featured on television shows like: The NBC Today Show, Ripleys Believe It Or Not, Livin Large and X-Corps TV.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The learning curve of a Wheelman is very similar to skate/snow/surf board riding.
And if you have any experience in these you will be surprised on how fast you pick it up.
At speed you use body movement to steer and at low speed (and you can ride a Wheelman at an extremely slow pace) you can angle the front wheel from side to side with your foot.
The speed is controlled by a cable type controller held in your hand, the more you squeeze, the more fun you have!
To slow down, simply let off of the throttle for a slow smooth deceleration.
To stop quickly, simply pull the brake lever on the hand held control.
Tearing up the grass, sliding in the dirt, cruising the beach, that's the Wheelman life!
Don't be the last on your block to own one!

I got this Wheelman about a month ago and it's so awesome. You just get on and ride. Doing wheelies are easy and it goes pretty fast especially since you're standing up and riding. I recommend this to anyone who is willing to get outside and have fun. GET IT!
