    Carlton Flyer (?)

    I bid on (and didn't win) this bike last night...there seems to be some discrepancy within the listing as to whether this bike is indeed a Carlton Flyer....seems like a pretty cool bike to snag regardless...did someone here win this? Is this bike indeed a Carlton Flyer? Should I be kicking myself for not winning it?

    it has the same lugs as mine, though mine are chrome. Id say its a flyer.

    Yes, looks like a Carlton Flyer except Carltons usually had the shiftlever bosses brazed on. Repainted, they could have been removed like some fool did to one of mine!

    Heckka big though!

    I have a Carlton Flyer that I'm thinking of selling, though I'm not sure at what price, as given the state of the economy everything is weird these days. Here is a link: http://s343.photobucket.com/albums/o...view=slideshow
    The rear wheel is not original, neither are the tires, everything else is, according to the original owner. If anyone has an opinion on pricing don't hesitate to share.
    Thanks!

    That is nice. Would probably bring a good price on ebay.
