I picked up a Carlton Competition last winter. Black, bridge for centerpull, sloping crown, 531 stickers on frame and fork that were made '73 and earlier, serial #A (or H) 2913. Has braze-ons for rear brake on right underside. Huret dropouts with a rear derailleur stop that doesn't work with modern derailleurs. 27.0 seatpost. (I don't get it but there is no way a 27.2 will go in and you cannot tighten the bolt enough with a 26.8.)

Questions? What does G.S. mean? What are the BB threads?
