Up for sale is an Evans Viscount 700 bicycle with original paint, tank, light and horn.
The Evanaction springer works wonderfully. The tank has the lens, horn, and the hard to find rear clear plastic piece (I'm not quite sure of it's purpose). Although not in the picture, I do have the original chain that came with it and will take more pictures upon request.


The price is $500 plus shipping OBO.


I accept paypal, without the fees (or please add the 3% surcharge) certified checks, and money orders.




I've only owned it for 2 months, so I really don't know much about it's history or the exact year it was made. I've seen the 1961 Colson catalog on Howies bike website that looks similar to mine, but not the same color, so if anyone out there knows when it was made please let me know.

The serial number is H166401B26.
Please feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking.

I've never seen another this complete. Cool how they moved the tail light to the back of the tank after the addition of the wire rack.

I too have never seen one that's complete minus the correct tiger striped seat.
I once had the girls version of the Viscount 800 with an incomplete tank light.
But this rear tail light application is intriguing and damn cool looking.
However that rear tail light concept doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
I wonder where the switch for that rear light is?
Is it activated by twisting the lens?

This it is the one I had on mine when I had mine

Here is the bike all I have left is the frame and chainring, crank and rear rack that's all pitted.
The first bike that I ever parted out.

Looks more like prison stripe we're talking about. I cannot find another picture of that seat in any Evans ads.

Not sure if it came with that kind of seat; maybe JD's was an anomaly? I've looked at http://howiebik.proteanpaper.com in the 1961 Evans Catalog in all of their Viscount seats were white. I also checked out the Evans Colson Dealers bicycle catalog on Ebay dated 1962 and those were white as well. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-196...-NICE-COLOR-ad-EVANSACTION-FORK-/141193647221


JD, Did you ever find out what year yours was made?

Thanks,

DJ

My 800 was 1959-60

After some researching I came up with my Viscount 800 EvansAction to be a 1959-60 model.
Incomplete tanklight. That I could never find another one like it at the time.
In fact I don't think I ever did find another like mine.
But I do recall someone else had a EvansAction springer with that exact seat.

Because the tanklight parts search was so disappointing I, with regret today, parted the bike to a member here. Of course he wanted the front fork springer primarily.

Here is the gallery of the bike

I don't think that rear clear lens belongs on that tank.You can see the gap between the tank halves and it is a poor fit.(just my 2 cents)

I have seen the tank in person inside and out. The lens definitely fits, it is not properly assembled in the pix.
