Just wondering if an old Viscount in pretty good condition would be worth $75? Looks like it might still have the Death Fork on it. What do you think - too quirky?

If you buy it, run your finger under the fork crown. If you cannot feel the inside of the steerer; in other words, if there is not a hole in the bottom of the crown DON'T RIDE THAT FORK! They can and did break completely without warning on completely routine impacts. Mine broke on a bunny hop over a re-paved construction ditch I'd hopped probably 100 times. Fork and front wheel just snapped off clean. Broken collarbone, some road rash, 5 day coma and 7 years before I had enough put back together to back to school and retake my undergrad degree.
