Inventor of the McLean Wheel
I think we all know someone who can do just about anything… Well for me, that person is my friend, Kerry McLean.
Kerry McLean is probably best known for his one wheel monocycle, the McLean Wheel and the Rocket Roadster.
- In 2001, Kerry was fortunate to have survived a horrific crash with his V8 monocycle when on its virgin test run it began to wobble out of control and flipped through the air slamming Kerry into the pavement. Afterwards, Kerry determined the cause of the crash, made numerous design changes and completely rebuilt the machine.
- In 2011, Kerry completed the McLean Drag Wheel, a V8 engine powered monocycle that’s almost 25% smaller in diameter of his original V8 model.
- In 2012, Kerry continues to make improvements to the monocycle and he enjoys inventing and building other very cool things, including his conversion of a 2012 Fiat 500 to a 100% electric vehicle.
You may recognize Kerry or some of his crazy creations, as seen on the Ripley’s Believe It or Not TV Show.
Kerry has set a number of Land Speed Records on the Bonneville Salt Flats, including one on his Motorized Barstool.
