As an aside, we had an awful job selling green bikes in the 70's as it was considered an unlucky colour. We deliberately used to avoid high stock levels of anything green :)

Quite a rare colour too, so that appeals.

Anyway I am taking it in in about an hour and have to decide! Bronze or blue?[/quote]

The Contra la Montre was/is owned by another Carlton fan,he has/had a lovely collection of Raleighs from the 1940's till the 1980's.It was seeing these that got me restoring/collecting old bikes.Trying to wittle the numbers down just to odd ball frame designs.....but having difficultity parting with my three remaining Carltons.

yeah, great paint job. Far better than I was expecting.
Those 600 brake calipers look great, far more beautiful than my 600 tricolours
