Carlton Cobra

I just acquired a nice shiny Carlton Cobra frame and was wondering if anybody can help with a few bits of information.

It's frame no is NG42**** and its apparently from the late 70's what kind of threading does it use on the fork and BB.

It has a TI transfer on the down-tube dose this mean it's made from tru-wel tubing if so what was this tubing like?

Finally is this realty a Cobra as described?

Will try and pot a few pics as I restore it

From what little I have found out on Raleigh serial numbers the N means it was built in Nottingham and the 4 is for the year. Either 1974 or 1984 and I suspect 1974 being it is a Nottingham built bike. Roger
