I found this excellent condition Evans Colson bike from an elderly lady. She said she can’t ride anymore. It says Viscount 700 on it. And the Evans label in the front seems to be paper ?
has the light but lens is gone. I have all the front and rear fenders and the rear spring holder bracket as well. It’s made here in Plymouth Michigan. As I’m from Detroit. It’s a local brand so probably not a hot commodity. Worth anything ? Rare ? (I never heard of them) just started getting into the old bikes. So any help or info about it would be good. Seems to be a 50s ?
Sorry if I posted in the wrong section as I still have my training wheels on !!!

Evans was into bicycles about 1954-62. This girls bike looks to be of the later era, when the boys frame was "cantilevered" with two seat stays that continued past the seat post down to the down tube.

Pretty bike, would make nice rider for a gal. But as for being collectable .... nah. I wouldnt exceed $50. Not to say Evans doesnt have collectable bikes, but a girls bike with no fenders, rack, and springer fork just aint one of em.

Floyd, read the fellows post again slowly and possibly reconsider your evaluation.
The gentleman said 'he has both fenders and rack.'
It's obviously in great shape and complete.
Sure it's a lesser values step thru, but a clean well equipped nice riding classic is worth more than lunch money.
To the right person in the right market I could see a listing value at $150ish, No?

Go to the search box at the top of this page and type in Evans 700. You will get quite a few examples of Evans bikes. I had a men's 700 5 years ago. Photo attached. Sold for $500.

Maybe...but then whoever buys it will spend the rest of their life looking for the lens...maybe.
