    Found it at the dump

    I couldn't resist. I picked it up and put it down a few times, then it called to me. Now it's in my yard.

    That totally rocks.

    One thing though, check that weld in the pic.

    I do believe you have found yourself a Rutledge. I didn't know they built Uni's, but their 3 speeds are highly sought after in the C&V world.

    If you are thinking about stripping her down and spiffing up feel free to shoot me a PM. I have some experience in frame painting.

    Where's the rest of the frame? Where's the front wheel and handlebars?

    I know a guy who learned to ride it in his middle age crisis; beats a sports car IMHO

    There is a guy locally that just did his first Metric Century on a Unicycle. You can read about his ride here.

    You can get new ones from

    http://www.hiwheel.com/

    Look under "Boneshaker" on the left menu.

    While on the subject of human powered vehicles, when Team Clydesdale was in Ocean City, NJ, two weeks ago we noticed the boardwalk was marked with a lane for "surreys." Bautieri asked what they were. Here's one, and you can own it for 4K.

    They have some with 4 seats in VA Beach that you can rent, thought they would be excellent for a car pool

    Well, I said I HAD to have it. I never said I was going to ride it.
    I does seem fairly light duty. I'm sure in it's day it was built as a kids unicycle. Kids I have, maybe I can get one of them on it. That would be cool.

    I came across this vehicle while on tour, just north of Frostburg, MD. They darn near caused me to veer off the trail to get around them. They took the entire trail, only moving aside when they realized I wasn't slowing down.....

    Kind of a cool looking rig actually, I wonder how heavy it is? You know add some decent gearing and a box to hold gear on the back, and you would have a very nice, tandem touring rig......
