In september I posted photos of my Carlton Corsair and said I was going to upgrade the drivetrain.

Good work, although it looked much better in its original form. Just my view though. :)

I've got a Corsair frame too, nowhere near as nice as yours though (there's a bastard of a dent in one of the seatstays).

It looks great with the new paint. Perhaps you could try lug-lining around the headtube - in orange to match the cables. Stick a new headbadge on there and I'd call it finished!

Incidentally you might want to shorten the rear part of the rear brake cable - there's no point in it curving upward and then back down again, it just adds extra friction in the cable and looks a bit untidy.
