American Flyer - Emperor

Does anyone know anything about these frames? Picked this up today from a local club member. He found it in the trash several years ago and has done a lot of work on it.

Please disregard the seat angle.

Bump for Long Legs Anderson over here. This does belong in C&V.

In exchange I would like "right of first refusal" if you ever get rid of that bottle cage.

nice looking bike, sorry I don't know anything about it. what make is the bottle cage?

is the rearwheel a standard road hub respaced in the opposite direction to get the cog against the right drop?

Not too sure about the bottle cage. It is pretty slick though! (ColonelJLloyd had some info on it.. maybe he'll chime in again)

That is the original hub, there's a spacer on the non-drive side.

Took a few more pictures today. I would like help picking a color for new wheels. Going with a set of 700c's.
