23" front wheel, crap brakes but amusing. With a bit of practice, I once managed a stand on the pegs in 3rd gear wheelie. Tried it again, thought I was in 3rd but was actually in 2nd, clocks nearly hit me in the face and came close to crashing, never tried it again - fond memories.
I also managed to start it by hand after the decomp cable snapped, it kicked back, foot slipped & the serrated pegs removed the skin from the entire length of my right shin through my jeans - not so fond memories.
