FOR SALE - $800 SHIPPED in the CONUS (pickup available in NYC)


This is a rare vintage Maruishi Emperor camping / touring bike from the late 1970s. It has 650 wheels and fat tires for gravel riding or urban commuting. It currently has 32mm tires on it but the fenders are 52mm wide so they can accommodate a much wider tire like a Rene Herse or Grand Bois if you choose. The triple-triangle design (a style of frame where the seat stays cross over the seat tube to connect with the top tube) allows it to carry a substantial load for long distances, with the triple-triangle intended to help keep the rear-end stiff when carrying camping gear or other luggage. It’s designed with a long wheelbase, many rack-mount points, and a low-trail fork. It is factory-drilled for internal wiring in case you want to add a generator and lights.

Size: It is a size 53cm square (seat tube measured center-to-top while the top tube is measured center-to-center). Stand-over is 30.5 inches or 78cm.
