c1960 Viking Hosteller

Notes:

A beautifully restored Viking Hosteller circa 1960.  Owner: Tom Schaefer who supplied the following information:

No serial number.  Everything was as close to original as I could get it at the time.  The original equipment included a Magistroni crank, Lyotard pedals, Benelux derailleur and shifter, 5-speed Cyclo freewheel, Exceltoo hubs (32-hole front, 40-hole rear), Dunlop Special Lighweight rims, GB sidepull brakes, Pivo handlebar stem.  For the restoration, I rebuilt the rear wheel with a Dunlop steel rim, but it was a bit wider than the original.
