I bought 2 bikes over the last 6 months and just started to clean and look at them more in detail as a hobby.
I took pictures. The Raleigh Supercourse looks like it has handmade lugging. What do you think?
The black "cross painting" on the seat tube says "Carlton" on it. Is that maybe the frame builder's name?
It's a Nottingham made Raleigh. What year could this be? It has cotter pin cranks.
The fork is not original. I bought it at a shop and they cut it to size for me. The original was bent.
Thanks for any knowledge.
The Motobecane has a registration sticker from 1974. There is a lot of color wear on the top tube.
Would like to know the model name. The top tube says "tour de france". Maybe that's the name. Anyone knows anything about this?. The front logo says Motobecane "Pantin".
