Mine is a "Gran Sport" from 1973, made by Carlton. As I understand it they made only two colors then, white w/blue and blue w/white. The blue was Lagoon Blue, Carlton's team color. According to the stickers my main tubes and fork are 531, but various catalogs and such indicate that depending on the year some were 531 stays also, and the tubes may or may not have been double-butted.
