A bit of an update. Its been slow progress as I'm divided between a 1955 Ariel Square Four and a 1969 BSA Bantam, its all bike related
There are not enough hours in a day, and definitely not a weekend! Also I hope to have the re-chroming back for the F R Russell I'm rebuilding in another post this week, so that will be another project on the move.
The Carlton is looking tidier but there are plenty of chips (patina
) on the paintwork. Actually, I like an old looking bike that is cleaned and polished it shows its character
Hope to have the wheels back on soon although I hate cleaning wheels!
I've not found anything to indicate a date except a philips crank axle which is stamped 1973, the cups are non matching Brampton so as Spokesman was quick to spot, it looks like its had some updating in the early 70's.
