Re: Viscount bicycles!!

OK-- if you guys remember, I posted 2 pics of my dads Viscount that I wanted to repaint/finish-- it's on page 36 if you want to see the old pics. Anyways, I finally finished-- decided NOT to paint and am very glad I didn't. Everything turned out great-- I pretty much went over the whole thing with a...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Quick question; I am looking for new tires for the Viscount that I posted about earlier (the V-3000 GS). Problem is that I don't just want pure road tires-- I will be doing mostly road biking, but would also like it if they would hold up in gravel and maybe even slightly bumpy paths too. Any recomme...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Definitely helps out a LOT! Thanks so much-- I almost wish I would have inherited a less rare/valuable bike so that I wouldn't feel bad about making it into 'my' bike! Do you have a guess what it is worth?

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Last question; does this bike have the 'death fork'? Can anyone tell by the pic-- I've read a lot about it, am guessing it is not, but just dont know for sure.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

The reason I am asking is that I am planning on stripping it and painting it a gloss black (no, I'm not using rattle cans--- bringing it to an auto paint shop to have it done professionally). I would love to save the original decals on the bike, but the paint needs to be baked for it to cure, and I'...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Here's 2 pics of the bike-- my dad thinks it is around 1976-- but he's not sure. Also, the decals are a bit different than the 'typical' decal that I am seeing on this forum and online in general-- is that also due to it being a bike sold in the US?

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I just recently inherited my dads old Viscount road bike-- even though its not in perfect shape, I love the overall look and am trying to restore it to its original look, the trick is find out what year it is. I'm sorry that I don't have pics (hoping to get them up soon), but it does have a V-3000 G...
