One of my books reprinted from 1942 shows a spiked monoped. I would assume they were from WW1 originally.

Moocho Thanks for the posting... They started putting a rear stand on these from the 20s, but they were external..

From the photo you posted.. Those spikes on the end of that Monopod would be hell to move around with with out getting hurt :shock:
