The East Lancs Vyking is a type of double-decker bus body built by East Lancashire Coachbuilders. It is the double-deck version of the Spryte. It continued the long line of 'misspelt' names which continued until the Scania OmniDekka. It was built on the Volvo B7TL chassis.

The East Lancs Vyking lasted through the Myllennium with the new name East Lancs Myllennium Vyking. The name "Vyking" was derived from the chassis being built by a company from Sweden.
