It's a pretty old model, no disc brakes, giant bulky saddle, etc. It might be on the overpriced side of things to sell quickly. Or at all.
It's not that old. Most unicycles are manufactured in Taiwan or China and they are not known to be leading edge manufacturers. These are not cars.

The saddle can be swapped out. It's a personal preference anyways. More bulk, more cushioning, more support and strength.

Some people would see the lack of brakes to be an advantage. Less weight and brakes are inconsistent with the simplicity of a unicycle. Why not just buy a bike if you are going to load up a uni with crap like gears and brakes?

It sounds like somebody is getting ready to bid on a unicycle.

I ride a Muni built in 2001 that's still plenty of fun and works great. I will probably never buy a newer model; no reason to. It's held up for 17 years and will likely last another 17 years and beyond.

170s will work great for technical Muni. Sure, they have fallen out of favor by KH, but that's his own personal preference. Some people don't slavishly follow his preferences. Use what works for yourself. I have used 170s until recently (switched to 165s) and they were/are still great fun.

It can be swapped out. A few extra ounces is not going to matter for the vast majority of people. They aren't top riders and will never be that good, so why obsess over a little extra weight?

I was lucky to get some older stock in Bedford Unicycle in Canada a few years ago (unexpected !). I do not know if they have some left...

Otherwise, you may get lucky by salvaging a pair of 140 or 125 off a 20 from the era.

There point was that it may be a struggle to sell at the too high price. As you say some people may not care about the crazy heavy weight, terrible seat and cranks that are unchangeable possibly requiring an entire new wheel$$build if they break due to lack of spares. However if aiming to sell to that niche customer it may take a while to find them, especially at that price. Which goes back to peoples first points of it may be a struggle to sell it.

Overpriced for a 6 year old unicycle. Needs a new inner tube.
Worth about $250 not $450!
