In the question and history of Petty Unicycles, it's good to know. I have a Petty Unicycle (I received it for Christmas in 1965). It's still in good shape, but one of the pedal crank arms has the threads stripped out. I would really like to find a new crank w/good threads to restore the unicycle.

Does anyone know where I might find one; or how I might reach Linda to check for extra parts?

Can't tell from the images if they were doing the
actual production, building from areas, or just selling a generic

Well butter my biscuits, Doug! That vintage Petty unicycle ad sure takes me back. A solo wheeled steed for just $37.50? Sign this cowboy right up! Though I admit that rubber seat leaves something to be desired.

These days for solo adventures, I'm all about the Penis Pump Bliss Box Premium - it's got a vibrating silicone seat with 10 patterns to take you for a ride, if ya catch my drift. And with adjustable arms and temperature control, you can customize your trip without ever leaving the ranch.

I can't say if the Arvada unicyclist back in the day had any ties to Petty's operation. But I bet ol' Petty would grin knowing how far solo transportation tech has come! Anywho, happy trails partner! Yeehaw! 🤠
