Just in case one of you Lambert or Viscount tragic's need a spare front wheel I found a very good nick Lambert front wheel in my shed the other day while cleaning up. I couldn't bear to just chuck it like the other old stuff I had been hoarding as for it's day this was an advanced wheel set the first I ever had with sealed bearings for sure.

It's a real one! Lambert branded ( -LAMBERT-) alloy hub with the sealed bearings and Birmetals England BIRMALUX alloy rim. Spokes are rusty but the rim is true and with a bit of polishing and a set of new spokes would be very nice on an old Lambert if you have one.

As I said earlier in the thread I had a Lambert ages ago and they were very good quite advanced bikes in lots of interesting ways.

Anyone with a Lambert or Viscount who wants a spare wheel pm me. This isn't going on ebay and I am not selling it and will gift it to someone who will get good use from it.

I mean it's lugged and has a threaded BB so everyone will know it's a Sebring anyway :) .

Hi. I have some original Sebring decals looking for a home. I could send some for the cost of the air mail (I'm in the UK). Probably best if someone PMs me one address to send to and then you can send them around. I gather it'll take 24 hours for this, my first posting on BNA, to be moderated and appear. By that time I should be able to put some pictures on Flickr and post them.

Too late on 2 counts, I got a set from another member a month or 2 back, and I sold the Sebring this morning :( . Sad to see it go but it didn't quite fit me, and the nice pommy bloke who bought it used to have a Hobbs of Barbican so it's definitely gone to a good home :) .

Thanks for the offer in any case, i'm sure someone else here will take you up on it, there's not many of those decals left.

I don't think it applies
see The Fixers first post today, it has a photo in it!
I suspect it was the file link, the one listed takes you to the page, The one I used
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3778/1003 ... 504d24.jpg
was the image itself.

I had no idea about these types of bikes until today and have been led to believe they are rare and valuable. If I post a few pics up (when I can) could you help me identify the bike properly. I saw a picture of your foldable Viscount, pretty sure it's identical to that one, and in rideable condition as well. Let us know


Hey Jack, post em up, I'd love to see! The main thing that will identify if it's a Viscount folder is the folding mechanism (I'm assuming that all the decals are missing).

If you've got less that 10 posts you won't be able to host the pics on this forum. But if you've got them hosted somewhere else on the web like Picasa, just get them embed code (something ending in .jpg) and then put around it. b


Sorry that this is so late! I haven't uploaded the pictures on any other websites. However, in the meantime, I've cleaned it up and listed it on Ebay, so there are a few pictures of it there. Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Red-vintage- ... 1354435178 (It's not listed, so i'm not trying to promote it here, just an easy way to show the pics)

Only just popped back in to the forum and saw this. Really lovely Spacemaster Jackinator! Very original by the looks, very much like mine. The chrome has cleaned up really well. Why sell? They're so good for tootling down to the shops. And the Pletscher rattrap rack is amazingly versatile.
