    Did anyone here used to ever ride a 50's bike with the banana seat on it?

    I have heard that these are excellent for doing wheelies (heard stories of people riding a wheely all the way around the block and stuff) but I can't hardly do one

    I've ridden a Schwinn with a banana seat, and yes, mad wheelies.

    My first bike had a banana seat. Twas early 70's though. I never had a bike from the 50's.

    I'm going to say that it falls into the back in the day field. Everyting was better back in the day. The air was cleaner, people were polite, you could do wheelie's all day long, back in the day that is.

    Keep trying you will get better and even you will be able to ride long wheelies. With practice you will be able to ride a wheelie around the block, over curbs, and even off of a ramp. All it takes is practice it doesn't matter what type of bike you have.
