Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
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.
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.

(why can't I get this to appear as an image? Is it a Flickr thing?)

There is NO room in the shed for the next bike! New shed rqd.
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

was the image itself.
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.
I've had an Aerospace pro since 1977, bought new from Sun City Cycles in Townsville. It and a PX10 LE got me back into cycling in a big way. The Viscount is a bit like grandpa's axe. The first major failure was the Crane rear deurallier which disintegrated into the wheel, tearing the cassette side dropout from the frame. A couple of rebuilds and squillions of miles later via Darwin and now Canberra, it's now very Brit with BRG powdercoated frame, tan coloured Brooks leather everywhere and polished alloy. Largely Suntour Superbe Pro bits - brakes, cranks attached to a Klein spindle rolling in press fit sealed bearings, Superbe Pro chainwheels and pedals, front and rear deuralliers, levers and hubs. Original stem. I run Vitus alloy forks which are designed for 700 rims but 27" clinchers on Araya 1" rims just fit with a shallow drop front brake. I still have the original series three alloy fork which, when installed, I used to get magnafluxed to check for potential catastrophes. All up still a lovely whippy bit of kit.
It shares space with a timewarp Carlton Cobra ten speed ... the chrome frame just needed a bit of steel wool to bring it back up. White Carlton brake hoods, Weinmann centre pulls and Huret shifters. On the lookout for a set of period 36 hole alloy 27s to replace the steel Rigidas on Normandy high flange hubs.
