Hi I'm Paul,
A cycling friend put me onto this site. Earlier this year whilst living in France I picked up a used 80's racer. It's got lots of nice old Simplex bits on.
I don't really want the bike so stripping it down to sell the parts. Wondering if I can sell through this site or do all the auctions go through ebay?

Paul

warm greetings to everyone.

im ulnuk, 60 years old, from the philippines. i learned and started biking when i was ten or so on a rented small bikes until the time that i entered college. a friend sold me a frame and slowly built it, that was in 1978. aftet college i put that bike aside until i became obese and only a few years back i started again biking and with a 135kgs weight, i found a gt mtb online replaced it with a sc chameleon and finally settled with a fixie and started to lose some weight. recently, i bought a frame from a junk picker which i learned from google app that it is a carllton with crespera lugs but no wrap on its seat stay. i made a simple fixie built with diamond back fork and bridgestone road man drop bar and 700c wheel set and made some good rides on it.

i am repainting it as of the moment and found out on its left dropout the numbers 64391 this is one of the reasons that i came here hoping i'll be able to identify what kind of carlton i have and try to reincarnate it with original components as far as i may. attached are some pics on the matter. thanks for accepting me and thank you all Sirs/Madames, wishing you all the best.

afternoon

popped a valuation request in the 'whats it worth' thread.

Found this forum trying to find out about old steel Geoff Roberts frames.

I am a cyclist, and I think the retro kit - particularly the old lugged frames are things of beauty, but I neither have the time or money to do the vintage stuff any justice!

I like the modern things like thru axles, disc brakes and tubeless for the longer endurance gravel sessions (probably shouldnt mention such blasphemy in here :D )
