You could be the proud owner of this vintage Empire Sports Jet Star folding bicycle. Made in W. Germany in 1971. Featuring an easily maneuvered telescoping stem and seatpost, front and rear fenders, rear spring trap style rack, and faux gator saddle. This bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


Bicycle has some surface rust and a tear in the saddle, but is otherwise in good overall condition and free of major damage. Unsure of working condition of light, but may just need some tinkering. This bike has been fully tuned by a seasoned shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was test ridden and given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle checking steering, and braking. After you receive this bicycle minimal adjustments and assembly will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bike is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
