In 2004, Leon Haslam earned Rookie of the Year honors while competing in World Superbike with the Renegade team with Noriyuki Haga. Leon’s best finish was 3rd, and he finished the season in 8th place. Italjet released a limited edition replica of his pit bike with a special cosmetic package that replicated what Leon would occasionally putt around on.

The Dragster is a rare enough find in the US, but a Haslam replica is extra special – assuming you care about the racer. Built in Italy, the Dragster was available with 4 two-stroke motors – 50cc, 125cc, 180cc, and 250cc. The tiniest option produced 4.4 horsepower, which was enough for a top speed of 31 miles per hour. No matter the displacement, the scooter featured a space frame with a RADD forkless front end. In a 2001 review, Motorrad Test said “this scooter is nothing for pragmatists, but a good choice for exhibitionists.” I’d say that’s especially the case for this stickered-up example.

This specific Dragster has 2,578 miles and it’s being offered with a Illinois title. It was originally sold in Europe and then imported to the good ol’ USA. The sale includes the OEM tool kit and the seller says that the scoot needs nothing in its current state. Find this Italjet for sale here on Craigslist for $3,300 in Chicago, Illinois.
