    The 61 Carlton goes for its first ride this weekend :)

    Sorry no pics yet...

    The build is going to be a triple crankset from an old Miyata
    Original GB brakes Levers
    Original Cresta handlebars
    Campagnolo record rear hub/phil front hub both laced to mavic modules
    Suntour wide platform BMX style pedals (they fit my fat feet well)
    Original GB stem is pretty much stuck for now...so I'm going to use it.

    Brooks b17, either black standard or honey narrow...Possibly sheldons brooks pro.

    Due to my neck/back pains I'll probably consider using a Nitto Technomica Mustache bar combo.

    The LBS removed the original Williams cottered crankset. The cups and bottom bracket were in great shape. Pics will follow after I get done. I hope I can get the frame cleaned up better. I'm using turtle wax white rubbing compound with good results, its the least abrasive.

    Inside the bottom bracket looks okay. Some rust but not serious bubbles. I tried to put my finger in the chainstay tube but bumped into a pin...Nice old world tacked and pinned craftsmanship. So very cool to me!
