Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hi All,

This is on a well known auction site but seller has no idea of make or model.

One or two things make me think it might be Viscount to some extent...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

If this was an actual forum devoted to Viscounts, then this would probably be a new thread. But since we are a minority still pining for a homeland... I ask it here: what search words do you use to keep an eye out for Viscount/Trusty/Lambert stuff? Apart from the obvious. I was prompted by Sooper8'...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Busaste many thanks for all that info and the link. I appreciate your expertise!
Very interesting stuff!

I spent last couple of nights following the links and reading through this thread in detail. It's a great archive of information.

One question...when/where are the T shirts available ?

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Wow. That's a great find. It looks to me like an Aerospace Pro, pretty much the top spec bike of Viscount's range. Let's see what's original: forks (of course), wheels and hubs, seatpost (original micro-adjust? not sure. Busaste will have to answer that one), front and rear mech, pedals (maybe, can...

I used to ride a lot and have some knowledge of bikes but it's all but gone know, so forgive my dumb questions I'm going to ask at the end of this post. I had...
