If you’ve started to see those one-wheeled scooter designs zipping around your neighborhood, you know they all seem to fall into the “futuristic” category… but not everyone wants to look like they’re filming scenes for Back to the Future. Designed with this notion in mind, the ESCIS unicycle harkens back to a bygone automotive era. The vintage look is achieved by a glossy monocoque shell, pinstripe tires, and chrome detailing throughout. Finishing touches like a faux fuel cap, leather/denim saddle bags, bullet brake lights, and even a hood ornament offer up even more throwback appeal.

“I decided to create my own working electric masterpiece. Real chrome on electric motor, custom-milled and polished aluminum handles and parts, genuine leather, 3d-printed carbon-filled plastic body, polished and painted in the auto-painting workshop. It’s a totally functional model with 1.5kw motor and 680wh battery placed on a leather bag, weight 20kg and max speed 20km/h,” Kos told Yanko Design.
