Vintage British Bikes - Carlton

Table of Contents


This bike has a small amount of history to it. My father built it from various parts to use on a cycle tour of Norway back in the 70's. The frame was new to him, but the rest of the parts were cobbled together from various places and very few of them were new when he got them. After the tour it was originally built for this bike then became his generic run around bike, used for years to commute to work and for leasurely rides in the country.



I don't know much about this one. The few bits I can cobble together are:

  • Reynolds 531 tubing
  • Campag drive train
  • Stronglight cranks
  • 700c wheels/tyres

As I progress with the refurb, hopefully I can fill out this spec abit more.
