Why are you selling? You posted recently that you just bought this.

Who is the builder / machinist? Do you have photos?

Also, are the ends of the spacers machined to be slightly convex?

a 'rolla bolla', or 'bongo board', is essentially a plank on a tube used for balancing and spicing up all manner of shows.



caricature clown on a bolla? could it be that everything hasn't been done?

That's what I thought it was. And, I was thinking the same thing! Why is this contraption so expensive or hard to make? Seems pretty basic to my ignorant newbie way of thinking. Is it hard to do? I'm getting a unicycle to try out too. I was thinking of the rolo bolo as well for a goof.

It's not hard or expensive to make..at all.
It's not hard to do but it can be challenging to do well, to do unique, ..you get the idea.
