Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Just realised that the other ladies Sebring on here has got the exact same seat. Therefore presume they are original. Just heard from the seller of this bike that it was his mum's and she rode it maybe 10 times in the last 30 years.She had it from new. His dad had the matching men's bike but that wa...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hello Viscount fans! Just had to share this with you all. Bustaste very kindly pointed me in the direction of this when I was looking for a set of wheels to get a 1978 Aerospace Sport up and running. The seller only posted one fairly small picture with no real explanation of condition, but I didn't ...

Thanks for answers, especially about the import tax.
It isn't this forum but it is a fairly big bike forum.

Vintage cycling jerseys

Just back from a trip to Florence and there was a great flea market on Sunday. After much searching I found a guy selling about a dozen or so vintage wool cycling jerseys. They were awesome! And I negotiated a good price. Unfortunately they were all too small for me. Damn! http://i139.photobucket.co...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Thanks for that Sooper8. Do you still have the details of the supplier of the Viscount seat? There is a second hand one on ebay at the moment,but a new old stock one would be better as it would not have already been streched to suit another persons bum. You could p.m.me if you like. p.s. i like the...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hello again all. What saddle would best suit the Pro ? Or??? My son bought this NOS Viscount (Brookes style) leather seat off eBay for his Pro. Looks great and is Viscount but man alive, it's like sitting on a razor after the first half mile. The seller had a couple more and had dropped them to £35...

Re: Alternative to Galaxy

But the question is....are Mexican made Strat's as good as US or Japanese Strat's? I had a Mexican Tele and never bonded with it. Even in terms of looks and finish, next to US or Japanese they feel a little inferior to me, but then again, you get what you pay for and they are a little cheaper. But ...
