Rollerblades get 1.5 horses

Check out this pair of Motorized Rollerblades that was retailing for $78 on eBay. Fancy wearing one of these to push you through those strenous uphill stretches so that you can enjoy an exihilirating ride downhill? The reason behind this mad mod is powered by a two-stroke, 25.65cc engine that pumps out 1.5 horsepower at 8,000rpm. It can hit 20mph within 17 seconds, so make sure those bearings are properly oiled before use. Oh yeah, did we mention the pressing need for wearing the necessary safety gear if ever take this pair out for a spin? Brakes are applied via rear drag, but I wonder how effective those are.
