Well, the Guinness folks specify that "from the outside the vehicle must appear like a traditional motorscooter. ... [but] the engine may be modified or replaced in a way that seems suitable to gain a higher speed." With Hine at the wheel, the run actually happened in August 2014, but it took Guinness quite a while to certify the feat. The official world record of 107.6 mph was measured as an average over a quarter-mile stretch of the test track, and handily beat Colin Furze's old record of 71.59 mph. Judging by the wheelie bars, Pops could take any comers in a drag race, too.
