Are the wheels 26" or 27"? To my eye, I'm not inclined to think it is a Sprite because the wheels like like they are 26x1-3/8 and the fenders of Sprites of that era didn't have the peak on them like the Sports did. Interesting looking bike nonetheless. I'd grab it because it is different. Same with the Carlton. There just aren't that many stateside, which makes it more unique atmo.
