If you used Firefox as your web browser, that might have caused your picture to display sideways. I've experienced that here. The solution for me was to use Internet Explorer if I wanted to upload a pic to this forum.

These old-timey unicycles are awesome. JimT, any idea how big that wheel is? With the seatpost and tube so low it looks like an old 36er!

I reckon the one with raked fork made from an old trike is my favourite though. It looks very... Utilitarian, a true commuter's unicycle.

TMason's is a 26" and I'd guess that the other wood rimed uni is a 28". It seems that 26" and 28" were common in the day.

I'm eating a taco (with my right hand) and it looks fine.

I noticed your cool red retro uni is not the same one as in your avatar photo. Did you modify that one or do you have two?

I'll give 'em $200 and I'll pay the shipping. Do you think they would go for it, or do they have lots of space in their shop?

Thanks John. The red uni is my second custom unicycle and its a 20" uni.

The avatar is a 26" uni.

The one for $1595 sold a day or two after I posted the price. Maybe we gave the seller a little free advertisement.

I wonder if this thread will inspire more craiglist sellers of old unicycles to list their unicycles as "antiques" with hefty prices.

The big question is what was the selling price of that $1595 red unicycle. I'm guessing somewhere way south of $1595...
