Sorry chaps, lots of pics here http://www.flickr.com/photos/49118696@N04/

If you can't see that then I'll be very confused indeed.

Anyone have any idea of what model it might be? And its vintage? I'm still really umming-and-aarrring over how to build her up. Whats the feeling about the bits I linked too above?

Thanks everyone :)

I'm no Carlton 'expert' but I would say 1980's?

my guess is 1982.

Because I found a construction brochure of the brakes from that year:

(could also be a bit earlier..)

The forks resemble the ones I saw fitted on a Claud Butler Minstrel frame once, circa 1978/1979. Never heard of any relation 'tween the companies, though.

Some parts speak early 80's to me.
