wheelie machines

Guys do you think there could be a market for wheelie machines? I'm always having people ask me to build a wheelie machine. I looked into them and from what I found they run from like 9k and up. Id like to make some that we could afford to have in our garages. If they were more affordable a small groups of friends could pitch in an buy one for practice. What do you guys think?

If you build it, they will come.

(assuming it: works
Is built well
Is cheap enough)

I talked to my engineer and designer today, we are going to discuss it more monday. We have all the materials and everything we need to build one somI'm sure we will end up building one. Sure would be cool to have one at the central meet! We are open to ideas, sugestions, and any input and help you guys can provide.

i really dont see how that will help...

I have tried it, and its not the same as the real thing...no wind, and no side to side wobble or steering....no cops...no chicks with cell phones taking pictures....and no thrill....

Its like crashing in a video game..

The cool
Thing would be being able to put different bikes on it and have it operate like a dyno wheel so the element of balance and stability is still compromised.

Wheelie machine would be the ultimate drunk toy. I would actually come to more of the meets if I knew there would be a bunch of drunks trying to wheelie in the parking lot. Would be pretty funny.
