Thought for a second it was a Carlton Cobra (my first real bike) from the mid 70's LOL

I think Cobra might have been based in Preston or thereabouts (interestingly both of the eBay listings are from that part of the world which might back that thought up) - I have very vague memories of their frames occasionally popping up in Bill Nickson and/or Paul Hewitt adverts in CW.
