    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.

    Make a "tall" uni.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    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.
