  • Rare Finds, Odd Rides and Antiques

    I thought it might be fun to post the more unusual unicycles rides out there. I found this today at a garage sale. It's a 16" plastic wheel with a solid rubber tire. It stands about 3 feet. The seat isn't much more then an inch wide, and it's hard as a brick. I think I might clean it up a bit and plop a new seat on it.

    Anyone have any idea what it is?

        The seat tube looks longer than even freestyle length! The wheel is also badly off-center.

          Hahaha, that must be one of the seats John Foss says are made for robots, not humans.

            cool post...

            I got a purple 70's Emory, the seat cushion was gone, and so was the tire. It had 130 mm cottered cranks and a steel 24" rim and solid frame (the seat tube was a tube though). I gave it to a friend to learn on. I put a fast Primo tire on it and a Torker DX saddle also.

                The wheel looks like a Jugglebug but I could be wrong. The seat is similar to those I've seen on OLD Japanese unis.
