Here is a couple of pics of my Carlton which I have not ridden for perhaps three years due to living abroad.
At the time Iwas into mountain biking, and I bought her to keep fit during the week for an hour or so after work.
She is serial no WH0000314. Other than built in June I believe between 68 -72 if the factory serial number register is accurate.
The low number of 314 makes me think earlier possibly than later, 314 and June production raises questions ...I am sure Carlton must have made more than 314 bikes previous 5 months. she is also stamped 201 as well is that a factory code?
It has been suggested she is a clubman, but so far I have no evidence to support or disregard the suggestion ( it would be nice to know)
I am returning to France, and I think she will make an ideal companion for travelling around. I was originally thinking of selling her but perhaps worth more than what she is worth on the open market.
I live in a camper and part of the attraction is it doesnt look flash.
It seems at some point re the spec someone spent a lot of time and money on her.
