April Maker Challenge 24/30: Monowheel

I wanna make a monowheel.

"You may be hauling ass, but you feel like you're floating," says builder Kerry McLean. The metal fabricator and machinist built his first monowheel in 1970 and has been obsessively perfecting the design ever since. "I don't feel like anyone has seen it through," he says. "You hear words like 'trial and error.' That's just some hillbilly stuff. Broomsticks and baling wire. I'm doing R&D."
