I have never been sure as to exactly what model my carlton is or its year.
It has 72 stamped near the headset.

Can anyone help me please?

We could do with more close up photo's of the lugs, but the Carlton Continental and Carlton Circuit both had wraparound seat stays.

I'm sure an expert will be along shortly :)

Crespera lugs date it to 1967-74.......

Continental maybe

Is there a number on the seat tube behind the saddle ?

There is a single number 2. That is all.

I thought it was looking like a continental too.

Hmm, al the car;ltons we sold were numbered and that's how we checked stock. Is there anything stamped on the non-driveside rear dropout?

Y numbers on the rear dropout is 1967-68 which ties in with the Crespera lugs. The 72 on the head tube lug is the angle of the head tube in degrees...

Just have to tie in the year with the model.

Continental would still be my favourite but wil check, where is Spokesmann when you need him LOL
