I sort of got where you were coming from there, carlton flier, made it a bit difficult though as it was all one sentence.
The point I was getting at is that I doubt it is anything special, like 531 etc with regards to the tubing.
As you state they did make specials and the majority went to the export market, so it is unlikely to have been like that originally (ok, my bad on the part of my wording), assuming the original poster is in the UK.
My comment regarding Raleigh threading was to point out a potential pitfall if wanting to update the bike, as Raleigh threaded stuff is difficult or impossible to get hold of.
A '70's Carlton is, personally, not something I would like, I prefer older ones (like the 1959 my wife rides).
FWIW I have had a flat barred Pinarello, doesn't mean they make them, in fact I know it didn't leave the factory like that as I fitted the bars (and Campag flat bar shifters). Something that I think, in all probability, has happened here.
A bit of advice to you now, carlton flier. Learn how to put stuff into sentences, how to use punctuation and how to be nice. Also don't put words in other people's mouths, if you want to quote what was said, quote it verbatim, OK? Thanks.
Mmmmmm it started off OK then turned into the usual rant/farce from an expert on everything when I need lessons from you on punctuation I will ask.A bit of useful advise back learn your subject on Carltons before ranting on about a subject you clearly know nothing about As for a 59 Carlton I have one made at Dock Road its brilliant unlike your clever comments
This on top of your PM leads me to just to one thing.
You are a **** dick, Go shove your head up your arse and get a **** life, ok? Do you know me? NO YOU **** WELL DON'T. How do you know what I do or do not know about Carltons? Hmmm? How?
Get over it and get a life.
Nice to see you have used one full stop there, couldn't find the rest of them on your phone, could you not? Next step, find the rest of the punctuation set.
