    Not sure why but it looks like a Puch, maybe not a Prima but close.....

    The Viscount pitched up in my era, the frames were surprisingly light and well made..... I'd like one :smile:

    The problem was they tried to do bottom bracket, hubs, chainset etc and it all seemed to unwind.

    I always wonder what might have happened if they had stuck to frames? Probably gone the same way as Speedwell?

    You know what "they" say about temptation, Yield to it ! :smile: To be fair its probably only me that says that.
    The problem in the past has been the cost of getting anything across the channel but l have a contact with a van who does the trip now and then and he is willing to take things from time to time for a reasonable price. Just to say that from my point of view there is no hurry and the bike will be available anytime because l am not going to advertise it.

    Can anything sold on Gumtree be trusted?

    Yes agree to that , i got in touch with the seller of the second one and it sounds like someone has painted over the lower section of the forks and it might well have a frozen seat post
