Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Bendo, You've got the silver head badge correct by cutting it out to match the regular colored head badge. I guess the square was just how they were produced pre-cut. Busaste, Real nice frame. I know how you feel about the small frame. My aerospace GP is 21 1/2" and is now impossible to ride as...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Nice pics Bendo. While I don't know much about the "Supabike", I can report that the all silver head badges were standard issue on my aerospace Gran Touring models. I bought myself one of the last sets from H.Lloyd just in case I need a makeover on my originals. Busaste, How do you like th...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

The mold doctor is in. How about some household bleach? Don't know if it will kill the saddle/patient but will for sure kill the mold! Hope you enjoy the shirts! I just ordered a hoodie, hat, long and short sleeve at 50% off for Cyber Monday. Guys, tell your wives/significant others they'd make nice...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Thanks for the kind words Bendo. No rusted bolts or grease to deal with on this Viscount project! What I like about doing it with Zazzle is that you the consumer have all the color choices so you can match apparel with your bike! http://www.zazzle.co.uk/viscountshirts http://www.zazzle.com/viscounts...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Its finally here! My wife, the graphic designer and I, have created an online store to purchase Viscount logo shirts, hats, and bags. I know there has been interest on the forum to have a nice logo shirt made and now it is a reality! We came up with three different shirt logo options and each logo o...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

The all silver head tube and down tube "shield" were the original type used on the Aerospace Gran Touring models of which I still have on both my blue and yellow Viscounts. These were the lowest priced model with the lugless frame in 1976 on the food chain so I guess they couldn't spring f...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

And now it's three Viscounts! I recently went for a Viscount Gran Touring off Craig's List which cleaned up very nicely. It's pretty much all original with the steel rims, fixed rear wheel, suicide brake levers, stem mounted shifters, and half painted fork. I've still got my original 1976 VGT in blu...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Thanks for the link Goldie. They look like a good match minus the Viscount logo and much better than a bag tie!

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Greetings, I'm hoping to find a pair of top tube cable fasteners for my Aerospace Gran Touring bike. I've got a posting with pic back on 12/26/09. They were in bad shape when I did my rebuild and one just totally snapped today. If anyone has any extras that you can part with, please let me know what...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Just looked up fork recalls on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website, U.S. (for fun?). Amazed to see some big names like Cervelo, Giant and most recently Felt with fork failures/recalls. Makes you wonder since they're not shutting down anytime soon. In a way I guess Viscount was again ahead...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hi all, After I rebuilt my blue Viscount Gran Touring (see Dec 26, 2009), I got the bug to find another one with all the origional parts. I took delivery on a 1975 Aerospace G.P. from Craigs list last week that fit the bill. The origional owner rode it maybe four times and kept it pretty close to ne...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hey Quicksilver Didn't you know thats the way we ride them on the other side of the pond! Actually no kidding the picture is flipped but still inspiring to those whose Viscounts are more battered and are trying to restore. I rode it outside Sunday and boy the reality doesn't match the old memories b...

My kid figured out how to upload a quick photo of my 1976 Viscount sans new decals.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Thanks CTC for inspiring me to get my old Viscount Grand Touring bike out of the garage and make it rideable for the first time since 1989. Ordered some new rubber, took apart and cleaned the drivechain, and polished her up and it looked suprisingly good. I'm waiting for some decals I ordered from h...
