Thank you Tony,  That seat is rather small, I've seen them on some tandems of that period.  I'm learning as these older bicycles are not what I normally collect.  It was hard to walk away from them once seen in person and loving an old bike!

June has redone the costume bulletin, and the state uniform guide. The bulletin has a pattern to make ties, pretty simple to sew. All we have to do is get the powers at be to actually update the current listings. She had them done  before the national meet.

Here in CT, our necktie color is supposed to be yellow. i've been searching the links that are listed, Amazon, and ebay trying to find ties like you guys use that are yellow. I just can't find yellow. Red, black, etc, but not yellow. can soemone tell me what has to be done to change our state's uniform? If we can't find them, then we need to change to something that's available. Or if someone has a link to one, it would be appreciated.

I can't help but wonder the caliber of the pistol. A six shooter would come in handy when being chased by vicious dogs!

I agree with others who think this might be a 'one-off', cleverly built using vintage pieces with good workmanship.
Being a unicycle rider myself I know a lot of history on them.  The first thing I noticed is the seat. Commercially built unicycles didn't use a wide saddle, the leg chaffing and inability to use the 'horn' for for-aft balancing (because it isn't on this seat) rules out this style seat for use on a unicycle.  From the very first unicycle the seat always rose up in back and in front of the center section.

If there is a decal on the seat tube that reads "American Bicycle Co. successors to E.C. Stearns & Co.", it is likely 1899 or later.
