1963 Carlton Catalina

Full restore from a very tired looking frame, build up with period correct and NOS/SH parts... with a few tasteful 'modern' accessories.

Thought I'd remove the silly montage photo of my '84 Majestic and show what she looked like on e-bay before restoration.

WOW! What a great selection once again.
The months not quite over yet so there's still time to get entered :)
Entries close tomorrow midnight (ish) and a poll will go up Friday PM.
Next month is theme month and while I have a couple of ideas, if anyone else has any please drop me a PM with suggestions as the comp is for everyone. The more varied themes the better :)

Thanks

Jamie

Always good Jamie. Rapidly becoming one of my favourite visits anywhere on the web. Bike of the month is just pure joy to look at.
