Empire Bicycles

Postby Tinkerbell on Mon 7/May/12 10:23pm

I'm looking for any information and with luck photo's of Empire Bicycles. I believe they were made in Christchurch, but I don't from when till when. The have a gorgeous chain ring that is stamped with Empire in a circle.

I'd love to know the history of the brand and see headtube badge pics and decal pics (so I can get them made up)

Thanks

This is a crappy pic of the Empire I'm going to restore.

I have a chrome-moly Empire road race frame hanging up in the garage, but unfortunately all its decals disappeared years ago under thick lashings of paint. It no longer has its headbadge either which is also disappointing. I have a feeling that I copied some photos a year or two ago of an Empire bicycle that still had it's decals, only I'm not sure where they are and I'll have to dig for them.
