Hi,

Due to a recent house move I have run out of bike storage space, so I am letting my fully restored 1976 chrome Carlton go to a new home. Since I built the bike it has covered approx 30 miles during last summer. All the parts used to build the bike were either brand new or new old stock. The bike would make the perfect tweed run machine or weekend ride!

Carlton Cobra was my first bike :) would have had red / blue and black spray paint over the lug areas........I wonder if it's a Hull bike? if supplied by Cliff Pratt Spring Bank it will have an additional number stamped under the BB.

That god that is too big for me....

Might have to build myself one though. :mrgreen:

How much are you selling those watches for then?

Might buy one to compensate for the fact I can't buy the bike.

Id have gone for the more traditional/original look but having said that its looking really cool. The chrome seems really well preserved.
