These are great bikes. The only down side I know of is that you can't cram anything bigger than 700c x 25mm tires under the fork crown.

The 72/61 markings could refer to the head tube angle and frame size.
I have one of the early Lambert built Vikings, but it has little in common with your example.

They're also surprisingly light.
I have a '91 750 True Temper bare frame (58cm C2C seat & top tube) that weighs 5.18 lbs.
