The Carlton Catalina I had was 531, identical lugwork and the same wrap-around stays:

this geezer's stuff is very good.

My Carltons long gone but yes, it was a panto bolt.

I also had an non reynolds Carlton almost exactly like yours and with a panto bolt....

Is the art deco style head badge Cippolini, right for 1977 ?

The reason I ask is my bike has the same andyours is the forst bike i have seen with the same transfer.

The frame for mine is between 68-72 when chassis where WHOxxxxxx.

There is always mine is a 1980 on the later dating system, but something tells me it is older.

Any info is always useful

hi channa
thanks for the info
i assume that this is the original headtube decal
this was on the frame when i picked it up at the re-cycling centre
obviously the decals could have been changed!!

cipo

I am not suggesting the decal is wrong, as you say all sorts of things can happen.

If our bikes were decaled up similarly take a look at my thread a poor piccy of the reynolds 531 sticker you were asking about
