great job corbin I love to see and read unicycle related inventions.Where does the rack rest when not carrying uni? I think that rack would look much better on a sportsbike instead of that armchair on two wheels but thats just my personal preference.
LOL! I do have a Honda RC51. That thing is much faster than my 'ol 1200 Sportster, but it would have been a nightmare to make a rack for it. When the uni isn’t on the rack, it just sticks up; but, i can loosen the bolts and it will fold down and sit on top of the rear wheel well cover.
Chuck – yup, I made the 'ol rack. It won’t fit the Coker. Louise was already paranoid that I fit the KH 24 on it, and the coker would stick up wayyy to far.
I rode it to Santa Cruz yesterday, and to work this morning (aapl) and it does great at freeway speeds.
Cool! I didn’t know you rode “powered bikes.” Maybe you’ll let me try it out sometime? I have the endorsement on my license, but haven’t used it much since I worked for the driving school in NY.
The first time I ever saw Floyd Crandall (of the old Pontiac Unicyclists; early unicycle champion and original holder of the Guinness 100m record), he came riding up to a practice at the Redford Unicycle Club on a motorcycle with his old Schwinn strapped on the back. He had it laying flat, with the seat sticking out to one side. Probably just bungees holding it down.
On a sports bike/crotch rocket you’d want to orient the unicycle more aerodynamically. Like tilting it way out to the rear at a 30 degree angle or so!
