Cycle Pro Unicycle, vintage 1979

 

Cycle Pro Unicycle vintage 1979. I have rehabbed this 24 inch unicycle and someone will have to replace the original tire. The tires still holds air and the unicycle frame is a newly painted gloss burgundy.

The new unofficial Grocery Getter

The new used Grocery Getter a 1978 58cm Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2 in Black. I bought a silver Super Le Tour 12.2 in 1978. I rode the bike to class at SMSU now Missouri State and when I came out to ride home the brakes would not work, someone had stolen the brake calipers. This bike was one of the few production bikes that came with side pull brakes instead of center pull brakes. I really don't like riding a bicycle without brakes.
