Anyone ever hear of a Hawthorne Unicycle?

I’m going to look at one today and I can’t find any information on it!


I’ll be looking at buying a used “Hawthorne Unicycle” this afternoon. I assumed that Hawthorne was the manufacturer, but the only info I could find about Hawthorne was Hawthorne Bicycles that were made in the 30s. I’m crossing my fingers that this won’t be a rusted objet dart and I can learn how to ride on it.

ah right, though you were a spammer for a moment then :stuck_out_tongue:

don’t pay more than 50 bucks for it if its just a cheap starter uni…

cyclepro stopped using lolipop bearing holders, and one of those new is $55-don’t buy one of these if you have even a general idea of what riding style you want to do…unless its just general riding…great starter uni though…

k thanks! want to watch me on my XXX webcam? …just kidding…


glad to help

welcome to the forums

Yay! You can’t tell from this pic, but the seat is more sparkly then my wildest dreams. Next thing I have to do is learn how to ride it.

Wow, a classic! Your seat was made by Messenger, the same company that made the Schwinn unicycle seats from 1967 - 1983. I have a few, but none are sparkly blue!

Hopefully you can raise the seat to get some proper leg extension. I don’t imagine you’re that short…

Thats trials seat hight! :smiley:

Well, I’m assuming that KitKit is standing there just behind the uni in that photo, so I’d say the seat wasn’t lowering a little bit actually :smiley:


Sweet uni, man!

Hawthorn (no - “e”) is my middle name.

That’s all.


That thing looks like the next thing to an antique. awesome :sunglasses:

crud…my dad owns the exact same uni, exept for the blue seat, it is around 35 years old.

Sadly, i got one of these lolipop bearing holder unicycle from cyclepro. It just happened to appear next to my car one night. I can’t ride it due to my height, but it would be perfect for a shorter person (child maybe?). I was looking to maybe fix it up a bit, but if its worthless, then I will keep it as is and let some kid learn on it.
