those stunt bikes have huge rear sprockets, not stock. that is how they wheely so easily.
I am sure that a regeared america or speedmaster could get the front wheel up.
My non stock engine speedmaster will not pull the front wheel as it is (and I have tried) however if I was to put an 80 tooth rear sprocket on, even with the long wheel base it would come up easy.
FWIW both I have wheelied both the T bird and the R3 with no effort at required (2 up even). I don't do it a lot because I dont care to wreck the head bearings with all that weight coming down.
Nothing to do with skill, just simple math. Arm chair engineer to say the least.
