We have four details:
1. Carlton
2. Campagnolo
3. 1974
4. Silver color.

The Professional came in silver in 1974, and so satisfies 4 of 4 requirements.

The Competition GS came in silver with Campagnolo GS, but I don't think that was until a couple years later. So only 3 out of 4.

The International wasn't silver; again, 3 out of 4.

I admit my guess is just a guess, but I still guess my guess is a better guess than your guess. :Lol:

Our contestant wrote "silver color" not "silver", and to my tired eyes this is a silver colour.

Well, you may be right! I don't know what color op's bike is. This is one of those cases where I really do not trust my own eyes; color perception is not my strongest suit.

Nonetheless, based on his words, I stand by my original guess, which I guarantee is worth all the paper it's written on.

I'm assuming that he doesn't actually know what year it's from. But it is an assumption.

You tried this before. Lame description and no pics. Didn't work out last time either. If you can't be bothered to post pics and give a reasonable description, don't expect much in return.
