Anyone have any info about these? I found this on craigslist today for $75.

It has 36" and 12" wheels and it freewheels

It was made by Coker Tire Co. and says "The Wheelman Chattanooga, TN" on the headbadge. I'm wondering when they produced this model.

It's a blast to ride and makes a lot of people smile or give you a thumbs up.

It is a freewheel...the front wheel is the same one used by the Coker Monster Cruiser 36" (which I have). Wheel quality is crap. Brake quality is crap. Frame is heavy, but OK. Worth $75.

I think it's all been discontinued...that plus the exclusivity is the reason for the price.

$20 for a tube! I'm patching mine forever. :D
Also he thing is, who says in 10 years they will still make 36" tires? I was interested in making a 36" unicycle, but at the price for a rim and tire I'm going with 29"/700c.

At the same time they do seem to be expanding their product line.

The Coker unis have quite a following in the unicycle world...I'm guessing they will have those tires for a while to come. Plus the things are so heavy duty I'm guessing you can get a ton of miles out of a set. Not like you are gonna do centuries on it or anything.
