It's called a monowheel and that's Loomis Dean shooting for LIFE Magazine, in 1952, unidentified driver/rider looking to merge with traffic.

Here he is filling up...


and having filled up and it being 1952, he lights one up before he goes back out on the road...


wanted to get at least one where he's got both feet off the ground...


as you can see it's got a steering wheel...


'am I going to miss the photographer?'...


and this last one poses a couple of unanticipated questions...
