That is weird. Looks to be someone's early attempt at bicycle suspension. Cool piece.

Re: BMX wheel with springs between two rims ? WTF ?

I would say not BMX at all. That hub looks like it has an axel on maybe one side only, like it would be an insertion axel for something like a baby stroller. An older jogging stroller...

Re: BMX wheel with springs between two rims ? WTF ?

i have a feeling there is a thread cap on it in the picture. there was a comment saying they thought it was a 5/16 size axel.

I've seen post war German bikes with springs for tires, but not like that.
They had no rubber to make the tires.

Re: BMX wheel with springs between two rims ? WTF ?

It looks like the springs have popped off the seats, on the outer rim, which spun out, of line, with the inner rim. It's a wall hanger conversation piece, but I bet the buyer tries to mount and ride it, anyways.

Re: BMX wheel with springs between two rims ? WTF ?

First of all- here is a pair on an old Iverson monoshock. I'm not sure that they were stock wheels on this thing though. M.O. Mfg. who made them is Murray (Murray Ohio).

Secondly, look at the city where it is being sold...lol

It looks like a tank, but I bet it rides like a Cadillac.

Re: BMX wheel with springs between two rims ? WTF ?

There is another one, for sale, on ebay, by the same seller. Not sure, if it's the same wheel that was previously listed, but it is identical.
