I would like to perform the longest no hand wheelie on a vespa at the airport in gmunden/laakirchen
during training sessions i got the idea, to try a no hand wheelie as long as possible
at my trainings facility we didn't have enough space for a real tryout
I did a research on the internet to find an airport to perform the stunt
and finally i found the airport at Laakirchen and got in touch with the responsible person of this place
we use a vintage vespa built 1977. Normally it is not possible to perform a wheelie on a vespa.
customized modifications on carburetor and cable controls
some parts of the vespa needs to be modified to realise an automatic gas pedal
the aiport ist quite big and todays handicap is a strong wind with a strenght around 50 km/h
and the windshield surface of the vespa is quite big and not easy to handle against the wind,
but I'm a vespa stuntrider for 22 years now, so I will find a way to handle the mission.
yeah, I'm preety happy about the bad weather!!
I thought it's going to be better
but we rekoned in bad conditions after yesterdays location check
10 minutes before the world record attempt, the weather got pretty bad, but this couldn't stop me to perform the wheelie
windconditions with 50 km/h and strong rain, but I had a great ride from start till finish
to perform a free or no hand wheelie on a vespa you need to be one with the engine. then it's possible to perform this stunt.
and as you can see we could reach nearly 274 meters
we collect the whole statistics and data aswell the videofootage and we will send it to
guiness book to get an official entry.
we are the first team performing a non handed wheelie on a vespa worldwide with full success!
I'm really proud on my Team! Great Performance, Perfect Job!
okay, we gauged the distance, we could perform a wheelie of 273.7 meter at the airfield track
