Hi
can anyone help with identification of this restored Carlton?
I've taken some indoor shots for now but can add more, no sign of a serial number tho' :roll:

Frame has been re-enamelled, I've seen pics on line of the same pearl white with black decals on a Carlton track bike...
cable routing for rear brake is internal, interesting BB casting and rear brake bridge,
forks looks like 531?
105 groupset highly polished.
any info / comments greatly appreciated

Not like any carlton I have seen. The decals (square) are a 70's limited edition and match a similar head tube decal so at least 10 years older than the frame.......also Carlton / Raleigh were pretty anal at frame numbering as they were run by bean counters and the BB would be stamped.

The design of the recessed fork / brake bridge / internal cable routing / bottom bracket slotting / seat stays / chainstay bridge / also not typical Carlton.

Nice though but almost 100% certain not a Raleigh (Carlton) :)

Interesting, many thanks for that...geometry looks tight ( not a lot of room between rear wheel and seat-tube ) and seat post is 27.2

anyone recognise this?

Any stamping on the BB would give a clue.
