When I was younger, I had a pair of fantastic junior racing bikes. The first was a Viscount, in pearl white ith anodised blue mudguards and KP Crisps advertising decals; the second was a Viking in dark metallic blue with a lovely engraved "v" pattern around the rim of the wheel. About the same time, my dad had an immense bronze Carlton touring bike that had, if I remember rightly, a decal of a bloke on a bike circled by a laurelon the front of the headstock. I've recently got back into riding, and I'm literally having dreams about these bikes. Can anyone fill me in on the companies, what happened to them and if possible, the models that these might have been?
