Guess this needs to go in "ALT"

What do I do with this and who can tell me anything about it?

You can hang it on your wall. While admiring it, you can order up a nice new Torker LX unicycle off the internet and learn to ride it.

Seriously, I've read that "lollipop bearings" are to be avoided on unicycles, but I think that's due to the difficulty of replacing them. But it seems like old unicycles don't have a lot of collector value, either, so it wouldn't hurt to try learning on that one, if it fits.

Is that a solid tire (non-pneumatic)?

You might also want to post here and see if anyone can tell you more on age, etc:

Solid, it's not a high quality piece. I'm guessing it's a 60s-70s kids unicycle. It's all there and I got it for free at the town recycling shed. I picked it up, put it down...and it called me back. Worst case is I just bring it back and let some one else play with it.

Well! If THAT is the case, you must find a young recruit and steer them towards THE FORCE...

That is the way the elders have taught us through the ages...

Now Hurry, I sense one as we speak!

Would be a good piece for a 'collector' ...?E-bay? That is if you are not wanting it..If I were closer I'd pick it up just to have in my pile...ahem, wall of fame.

My son's 11 year old friend showed interest...it's now his.
By the way, while on the unicycle forum I found some cool poop.
