Hey Sean, a worthy cause selling stuff to equip your new steed with complete DA ;)

Everyone likes an all chrome frame. AFAIK Sun only made low end bikes so I'd value the frame at between £50 - £70 but personally I'd try to shift it on eBay too making sure to include fixie and single speed into the description....Could go for a fair bit more if the right people are looking.

Those almost horizontal rear drop-outs will really appeal to some-one building a fixie. You could try the LFGSS website for a sale.

1) front, 32 hole, NOS, cosmetically A-/B+ as there are shallow scratches to one side of the inner hub. Bought as either Croce D'Aune/Chorus.

2) rear, 32 hole, NOS, 8 speed (not Exa Drive), cosmetically A+: unmarked. Advertised as Chorus, but it has a noticeably duller finish compared to the other two hubs (which are "see your reflection" shiny), so I doubt that is accurate.

3) rear, 32 hole, used, 8 speed Exa Drive, cosmetically A-: no scratches or dings, slight mottling of the finish evident on close inspection, only wear to the spoke holes shows it is used, perhaps built-up but not used on the road, NDS marked "Campagnolo Made In Italy". Bought as Chorus.

Photos here.

I wouldn't know how to ID hubs but as noted above, judging by the mirror finish, 1) and 3) are from higher groups than 2).

Any suggestions in this regard gratefully received, as well as prices.

Thanks in advance of your time and trouble.


Can't help you identify them but agree with your conclusions regarding the line up.

I'd personally list them at:

1. £35
2. £50
3. £55

And go from there. Obviously NOS stuff goes well on eBay.


The two rear hubs are relatively low end Veloce or Mirage I'm afraid and don't hold great value (£15-£25 without skewers). I'd guess the front is the same, 3rd from top of range Athena hubs have an engraved band around the centres while top models Chorus & Record have removable grease port clips around their centres.

I've never seen Chorus with a grease port only engraved as per above or engraved with Chorus.

Could you please explain how to identify them?

could any one help me with a frame? I have Carlton Pro Am, I think it's a 1981 from the id number. It's 531 steel, it okay condition, bits of surface rust, so could probably do with a respray.

Just wondered how much I should ask for it?

I'm doing some work for a re-cycling charity, I've pulled out the more special items and am wondering of the value of the below items

1973 Raleigh Carlton Super tourer - 531 Frame and Fork.
Frame is pretty good condition, some marks to paint but no rust. Chrome is in great condition. original brooks b17 in good condition. Parts on it are raleigh branded and in good nick but not original.

Image


Claud Butler Torino - 531 tubing

No idea of date - Has campagnolo sticker and olympic rings on seattube. Paint is bad in places, and lots of surface rust.
Image


GB Kromo Stem - Needs replating (I also have a GB Hinduminium spearpoint stem)

Image

Reynolds Continental Hiduminium alloy bars - Scratches from clamp

Image

I was aiming at selling the frame only as I am splitting it to get some of the parts for my new bike, a ti raleigh. I wanted the cranks,headset, seatpost and brake levers. So how much for frame only and if the price was right the complete bike and I d start looking for the bits else where.
The frame is 531, has matching frame and fork numbers. Original paint, rare simplex drop outs, fast back seat stays, nervex lugs, chromed head lugs.
Parts are campag apart from hubs, brake calipers are mafac.

Id put that frame nearer 100-120. A very nice Carlton built frame.
