Your new project, Viscount frame and fork for sale with extras.

Good day all, I have your new project right here. Here's what you get:

Viscount Aerospace frame 58x57
Rear spacing is 126mm
Fork is some version of the pinned monstrosity. Looks in good shape though
Bottom Bracket
Brake calipers, cables, levers, hangers, straddle cables
Stem
Seatpost
Clapped out Middlemore seat

Little bits of rust on the frame, overall in fair condition but I think it would be a great candidate for a repaint. $150 gets it to your door in the lower 48.

I forgot to mention, "Or best reasonable offer". Trades considered as well. The more interesting or obscure the better.

If anyone is interested in this frame but is worried about the cast fork, I have a chromed steel fork that came off a Viscount bike I bought last year. I'm assuming it was the correct warranty replacement fork. The bike I bought had a badly dented frame and I had to trash it, but I saved the fork and it's in decent shape. You can have the fork for the cost of shipping, just send me a PM. I'll just have to verify the steerer tube is long enough.

I like the old Viscounts. If I wasn't already in the middle of an extensive Viscount project right now, I would consider yours - it's the right size for me in a general purpose road frame. Good luck!

For what it's worth, I made a project out of one, and I really like it. It's now a fixed gear with straight bars. The brakes are pretty good!

Update. Now, I only have the frame. The rest of the parts are sold. I'll let the frame go for $75 shipped in the lower 48 for anyone interested. Be well.
