**Mind the Volume**...Colin Furze, resident plumber and all around nut job genius on his attempt to enter the Guinness World Records - (note the wheelie @1:35!)...a follow up to a previous video that some doubted was the ability of the scooter to reach the speeds quoted:
Colin Furze is a plumber, stuntman and filmmaker from Stamford, England. He is currently the Guinness World Record holder for the World's Largest Bonfire and World's Longest Motorbike.
On 13 March 2010, Furze uploaded a video to YouTube of his converted scooter. This had a flame thrower on the back which could shoot flames up to 15 ft in the air. On 25 March 2010, Furze was arrested by Lincolnshire Police, for possessing an object converted into a firearm, however, was released on bail without charge until 6 May 2010. This was Furze's third attempt, as the first did not ignite and the second burst into flames.
On 14 October 2010, it was announced that Furze had converted a mobility scooter which can reach 71 mph to try to enter the Guinness Book of Records. It took him nearly three months to build and has a 125cc motorcycle engine.
He appears as one of the experts on Gadget Geeks, the Sky1 series that focuses on technology and gadgets, that aired in January 2012.
