Excellent. Thanks so much for posting this. I admire your respect for the tradition and the venerable history. I just bought a book on the history of Italian cycling which looks like it will be pretty good. Once I read it I will give it to my bicycle mechanic.

No. The bars are alloy cruiser bars with the ends cut down. Then I just added some longer old school bar ends. Lots of stem and adjustment options since the bar ends can move or be taken off. And since everything is aluminum (vs. steel) it ends up being lighter. I put the shifters below the bars to free up the top side for resting my arms. Here's a photo before I put some bar tape on.

@TriBiker19, Well, it doesn't get much better than that, does it? Sweet ride!

Found myself shifting around more and more after about 30 miles on my Ironman, so this came yesterday:

My, Old Soldier Retirement Home has another tenant as of today. As I understand it, this is a circa 1970 frame. Going to build it up with a set of 27" wheels.




This isn't a high-end bicycle, but despite having a number of bicycles badged as Raleighs that were made in the same facility, I've never owned a Carlton.
This came to me courtesy of boatsinbottles, who initially posted this in the Frame doesn't fit thread. This will fit my wife perfectly.



It's a Corsa model - which from what I can tell isn't terribly different from a Raleigh Grand Prix when you get past the finish and decorations.



This stem won't be coming along for the ride. Considering whether to keep it for display.



This is the too-large for anyone here, impulse-buy Elswick Hopper that will be going out the door to make room for it.



I've always liked the Carlton head badges



The color is a bit more different than I thought it would be from my '49 Clubman. As I'm building the Corsa as a 5-speed, my wife will have a one gear advantage when we go riding.


Got more than enough projects for the winter now,

I was about to click on some new Dia-Compe from Alex's and these popped up on eBay for my Competition G.S. Seller says they are soft. They be soft. I'll try them out this weekend as I try again to wear out some Sprinter Gatorskins that some folks would have tossed 100s of miles ago.


For my Weinmann 605 on the '78 Raleigh Comp. G.S.

Got this in. Was cheaper to order this kit than just spacers... I'll find a youth to give the cog to I guess.
