It's not a Harrison - nobody knows what it is - but I like that in a bike.
It's a bit of a chronological mix but it will do 'till it's true ID can be established and period parts sought.

    Great looking build, but those seat stays and fork crown don't say Carlton to me. The look of the lugs seem to take a few cues from a mixture of Crespera and Nervex lugs.
