Bicycles of Brighton

I've been wanting to get a project bike for ages, and after a couple of rad bike rides on my crusty old mountain bike, and inspired by seeing my sister's beautiful single speed again, I finally bought myself a vintage Viscount 5 speed racing bike :D I reckon it's from around the early 1970's and it appears to have mostly original parts, but on a straight, smooth road it flies as fast as a fucking proton beam round the Large Hadron Collider. Too much fun! It's become a mild obsession and I've been perving over all the old bikes I've been seeing round Brighton.

My new toy!
