OTSG repeat offender, Bill P. in Kalamazoo, submits this 1974 Viscount Aerospace Pro. Very cool bike and a nice job cleanin’ her up Bill. A couple of observations: 1) those have to be the deepest/largest drops I’ve ever seen, or is it just a case of forced perspective? 2) What kind of crank is that? Very unique.
I picked up this bike last summer and I have been slowly restoring it. All new disposables and a new chrome fork, too.
This is the bike that had what has become known as the Death Fork. The OEM fork was a cast aluminum fork that was recalled in the early 80’s because some of them broke.
At around 22 lbs, it is very light for a vintage steel frame bike. Mine is one of the later versions with the Shimano Crane and Titlist derailleurs.
Thanks again Bill
