Cool find. Welcome to The CABE Valve to me is pretty minimal in the condition it is BUT do not let that discourage you even if I am right. Many of us have been into these old bikes for 20-30 years. Don't collect just for value, collect what speaks to you. It doesn't have to be super valuable to be cool or neat. Just don't get buried in the cost/vale ratio. It will clean up. There are many threads here about how to clean and service. Keep us posted.

I've got a similar AMF, 1969 "The Flying Wedge". Similar condition too. Had it for 15 plus years. Do something with it eventually. Those AMF 5 spds are actually kinda cult bikes and not real common.

The cleanups coming along pretty good. I've ordered some NOS tires for it. I was wondering if anyone knew if the back Fender was a Wald or what? Didn't know if it had a certain part number that anybody knew about. Also I'm missing the front brake I'm not sure what brand it is. If anyone has any info please let me know. Thanks

Thanks for the photo of the brakes. I would definitely be interested in the back fender. Just let me know if you want to sell it. This is a awesome site. Seems like a great bunch of people on here.

It's coming along pretty good. I was able to get quite a bit of the rust off. I do have a problem with the back rim. It's warped pretty good. Anybody have any suggestions on the route to go with the warped rim?
