Older Custom 29er rarely ridden

The uni was custom built in 2005 by LiveWire Unicycles (Dave Stockton) and was used very infrequently - probably fewer than a couple dozen times and not more than a few hundred yards at a time. The tire and tube will have to be replaced - the tire looks wonky where it was sitting on the floor of my family room for the past dozen years, but itís never been stored outside, not even in a garage. The powder coat has a few small nicks in it and the seat cover has a couple of small rips. The seatpost might also have to be replaced based on the height of the rider. I cut it down to fit me and Iím 5í6Ē.

I can take closer shots of the nicks or components for those interested. Asking $300 or reasonable counter offers. Shipping is extra unless you live within drivable distance from Saratoga/Albany counties, upstate New York.

Cool Rig. A couple of questions on it:

Cranks/Hub: Square taper crank mounts on the hub or ISIS (figuring square taper)?

Rim: What kind of rim is that? Do you know if its a single wall rim or double wall?

Tire Clearance: Would a wider tire (like a 2.6) be likely to fit that frame?

Cranks/Hub: I was told it's a square taper. Attached is a picture but I don't know anything about cycle components so if you want a better pic or some other angle, let me know.

Rim: I don't know, but Dave Stockton was known for his super strong wheel builds. I tried to pull the tire away and take a pic.

Tire Clearance: I'd say this Hunter frame is really good for tire clearance. See third picture.

Let me know what you think. Open to negotiating. I really don't know how much the shipping would cost but if you're interested I'll bring it in to UPS and find out.

Oh, and I'm asking $300 plus shipping, which seems to be pretty expensive based on how far away you are.

No thanks. I'm getting out of riding - neck compression issues. Chiropractor's orders...
