The blue one was the one I lusted after - but the red one I ended up with was lovely too.
When Ive finished sticking this one back together it will be like a new bike and I'll post some pictures - still looking for some GB handlebars though.....Then it will be like Im 14 again.....(note to self - need to see my therapist)


A few pics I dug out from my archives, this owner wanted an ID and a valuation, these were the pics he sent me...

That was the one!! - Saved for ages doing my paper round to get that. I suppose it was the nearest I was going to get to a good bike in those days - anyway it did me well for years and all my friends envied me :) Unfortunately some plonka gave it away when I was away abroad for a few years.
I was lucky to fine an unused cobra frame on ebay a few years ago and just had to get it.
Great to see the pictures.

Carlton Cobra was my first ever "proper" bike...........same colour as yours. Even put sprints and tubs on it and raced it in schoolboy time trials :D

Happy days the early 70's :)
