Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hey everyone, sorry for my absence, finally got situated after my move from Florida.

I am still attempting to find a Lambert branded ( stamped lambert on the face ) 52 tooth chainring. If anyone has one laying around please PM me, the nicer the better but I'll take what I can get! Lol

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Well UPS has really done it this time! My restoration lambert project and I had to move from Florida back to Iowa and I mistakenly thought the bike would be safer boxed up and traveling with a courier rather than in the back of my wagon, and I was wrong. Now I have been left to source out a replacem...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

As I build my lambert I am curious of the company's history.. It seems viscount and lambert both built the aerospace exactly alike and at the same time. Previously I was under the impression that lambert made the aerospace, then viscount bought them out and continued the production of the aerospace,...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I'd like to see a swap meet at this.. Even though I can't make it would be nice to see some good stuff for sale, and maybe by the next annual viscount meet I might be in attendance.. Maybe even bring some old viscount/lambert goodies from my small corner of the map.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I was working on the crank last night on my dearest Lambert when my friend sent me photos of a viscount aerospace he received last week. He told me its up for grabs if I wanted it, problem is I've run out of storage space in my apartment, so I had to decline. But if anyone here is interested, it's f...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

That's totally your call on the crack/casting line, since you'll be the one riding it! I'm just trying to investigate, looking at various forks pictures in the internet. Maybe more people can check their forks in that particular place and comment on? I have three of these forks and they all have th...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Well here's an update on my lambert; I haven't had any chance to look at it for some time now.. My daily commuter, my 89 Nishiki all original, and I were hit by a mini van and I have since then been dealing with insurance adjusters and doctors as well as my LBS. I walked away from the accident lucki...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Went out with my wife yesterday - her on the Sebring, me on the 'Sport. Forgot to take a picture while out and about but took this as we put them back in the shed. Just thought I'd share it with all you Viscount fans... http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8090/8486557502_507a70efa4_c.jpg IMG_3359 by Soop...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Truly a gorgeous bike, looks amazing, the detail and fitment you really can't tell that it's not original. Beautiful job on this one, that's for sure

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Try here . Definitely wind from the ends to the middle, because of the way the tape then lies in use. Your hands will tend to smooth down the exposed side of each turn. If you wind from the middle, the exposed sides get turned over by your hands, slipping down the bars. There isn't much choice but ...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Anyone have good recommendations for wrapping bars with cloth tape. I'd like to avoid using any finishing tape at the ends.. I find the whole process irritating as a fist time do it yourselfer..

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I've loved watching it come together. It has also been great seeing a bike being worked on inside your home!! I wish I had the b**ls to get my Viscounts in the house! :wink: Lol, I assume you have a significant other who prohibits this? My girlfriend doesn't prefer it, I park my commuter Nishiki (s...
