top work! very satisfying eh?


Now it is, but starting from the scratch this morning is a bit demoralising...

These wheels wont be perfect, but they'll do very nicely.

Lady at my cycle shop know my wheels cos they are all pretty much steel, much to her amusement. :)

Nice. I do find the design of hub very attractive.

Ive now added the World Tours...

Still things to do like sort some new seat tube graphics and sort the saddle, but the Criterium is starting to look the 1970s classic it was now.

fresh out of the workshop.

To me this is just how I remember them as a 13 year old lusting after this lovely bike.

Fantastic effort going into these. Keep the pictures coming please.

I've always had a soft spot for Carlton's as that is my surname. I've got my eye on a couple on Ebay at the minute with the plan to build a single speed/daily rider type bike.

Noticed the Pro-am is this to get the full spokesmann rework.
If so can only wait to see how it turns out.
These are a bike that looks better in the flesh.
