Raleigh/Carlton Professional frameset, full 531
Offering Raleigh/Carlton Professional frame + fork + parts * SOLD *
Nice quality frame with WD serial. Full Reynolds 531 tubing and Campagnolo dropouts. Fancy lugwork with pinstriping and enamelled cut outs. Open BB shell.
The frame is a Raleigh Professional, however I suspect it is actually a Carlton, but renamed 'Raleigh' for export reasons. I am in Holland.
- Reynolds 531 tubing for frame and fork
- Campagnolo dropouts
- lugs with cut outs, enamelled
- open bottom bracket shell
- Seattube: 54cm c-t
- Toptube: 550mm
- Rear spacing: 126mm
- Hatta SVX headset, chromed steel, in need of fresh loose balls
- Shimano 600 shifter assembly
From most angles it looks good, but from some other surface rust spots hurts the cosmetic quality. Especially on front blades. Structurally 100% sound.
Looking for 75 GBP shipped

Okay, thank you for the information. I reasoned it could it very well be a Carlton, as I do know that graphic style from Carlton and moreover I recalled Carlton frames that looked very alike. I would think that they renamed it Raleigh, as the Carlton name was not carried overhere. Raleigh was an established brand in Holland.
I had a similar case before: A lush Paramount PDG90 that was renamed Schwinn PDG90.
