Here's a film, shot by none other than Thomas Edison, of a chap pulling off some tricks on a bicycle in 1899.

You might think that this is a clever fake, but the existence of this page on the American Library of Congress site suggests that it's authentic.

Thomas Edison - popularised the electric lightbulb and the BMX Fakie trick.
