Hi lovely bike,both your restoration and as it left the factory.
I had a later Criterium,in a mint green colour.I loved the bike,I would guess that I was around 12/13 when I got it.It was secondhand but mint,a league above my mate's bikes Choppers,Grifters etc.I lived in Nottingham as a boy not far from Carlton.
The bike took me everywhere,I rode it miles, cleaned it polished it and loved it
I eventually outgrew the frame,I polished it all and the bike was sold to my Mum's colleague's son,I can still see his face light up when he laid eyes on it.Truthfully I still miss that bike
I really enjoyed the pictures,a real trip down memory lane!
Glad you liked them. Ive got two of these fellas...
