I've always liked the Italjet Dragster 180 for its quirky design and a decent one has come up locally and I'm sorely tempted. Other than it's Italian (and all that entails) I know the crankcases are fragile when changing bearings etc but otherwise have heard nothing bad.

Anyone owned one?

I know a guy who has one with 180 top end and he thinks it's ace. Mega quick off the line. 90mph+ top.

After repairing numerous variator sets on tuned big bore scooters ... I've had my fill and they are not for me.

PS I may be biased as I'm in the middle of another one right now.
Aprillia SR50 with 70 top end, 35mm carb, polini pipe. Tw*tting thing.

Never owned one, never ridden one.

But always thought they were ace, and wish I'd picked up a clean one in the past.

Do it ! Thumbs Up

I have a 125/180 and my brother also as a 125. Great machines.

I saw a Dragster on the way to work this morning, not seen one for ages. They're still cool. Did you buy it emzedder ?
