Okay Viscount folks,

Yes I am the one on Viscount Avenue in Ottawa who got Mark's Viscount recently as a winter project.

It came with a Viscount chainset, hubs, stem, brake levers marked Lambert, GB 77 calipers, Shimano 500 RD, Shimano 50 FD, Shimano FW, Nisi(?) rims, Tange headset ...

It is white with faux lugs painted on in red - similar to the one on Dale's Lambert/Viscount page.

Is this mix of parts of the right vintage for what seems to be an early to mid-70s Viscount? What is the date of the derailleurs? Could they be original? It is missing gear levers - these seem to have been bar-ends and the cable-guide on the downtube is Huret!
