My first good bike

This bike is over 30 years old, and looks just like mine did the day I bought it, except for the saddle. Mine had a sort of diamond pattern on the top, it was vinyl over hard plastic with some foam rubber in between. I quickly changed it for a Brooks, along with a longer seat post. The bike has a great light filet brazed frame. If you want to drop some serious weight, the crankset has steel rings bonded, not bolted, to an alloy arm. Also it has steel rims, which don't brake as well as alloy rims. The Suntour derailleurs work great.

The higher end Viscounts go for high prices these days on ebay. I don't know what this model would fetch, but in this good original condition it might be worth more for a collector than it is to ride.

Mine was ridden, modified, scratched, chipped, repainted, and finally stolen.
