What would one go for in decent condition? I have found one, with death fork, for sale locally. It has a Viscount leather saddle, viscount center pull brakes, bar end shifters and an unknown group on it (it was stacked under 5 other bikes).

I've seen them offered from $10 to $350. Condition, originality, and location seem to make these really vary in price.

A while back a guy in NYC tried unsuccessfully sell one for $600.

I just dropped $150 on this, but I really wanted the bike and it was a target of opportunity.

My recent one came from eBay. At $50, I was the only bidder.

No buyer's regret; I knew what I was doing.
But don't feel bad. this one isn't 'mint or NOS', and it's 56cm.

Just a point of interest.

I raced back in the 70's and a team from England came to the states in 1974 or 75, sponsered by Lambert or Viscount. Their bikes were the actual production frames with replacement forks. Everything else was Campy I believe, and sew-up tires.

It was really interesting to talk to these guys. The one thing that all of them shared was their disbelief in how hot the weather was in the summer months.

Lambert/Viscount took out multipage ads in Bicycling and Bike World mags. They really promoted these bikes.

Here's an ad from the Sept. 1975 Bicycle Journal, a dealer's publication:
