Frank Lenz declared he would ride around the world solo, in 1892

Lenz chose to go from east to west, leaving in 1892. He vanished in Turkey in 1894, most likely killed by bandits in a dangerous part of the region.

The bike was a 57 pound Victor

I doubt his tires were worth a 1000 miles, and no way he could get inner tubes once he left the biggestr cities on railroad trunk lines
