Please help identify this Viking bicycle



My guess is that this is a 1980s bike, but it just says Viking, no other model name is obvious. Any info much appreciated.

Could be late 70's. I recall Viking was used as a brand name in Canada on some products of the T.Eaton Company?

...look for date codes on the components.

It looks 70's to me, from the clips for the TT cable run and the geometry.
And not late 70's but earlier 70's

Also an indicator that its early 70s or before is the headlight mount of the front fork.
