It's not an International. It has stamped dropouts so it's a lower end model.

A real Carlton,

All the same, that is nice, very cool cool bike... no chrome on the back stays either. Paint job style reminiscent of those on Grand Prixs and I mean the Raleigh gold paint on the black but it has a Stronglight Crank, that is good, those brakes handles look like a Carlton too but with the plastic all the way worn off and I have not seen that happen.

So, if I am accurate in that it is a stronglight crank, that in itself, if it can be polished up, is notable.

Not all Grand Prixs have the black band on the top tube, this one I found in an image search does:



So, with Raleighs made in Netherlands, Ireland and of course, England, perhaps a slight difference in paint jobs.

Another green RGP with no black band on top tube:



Serial number would tells us a lot..



I never saw the plastic wear off these brake handles but I imagine they'd look like they do in the picture of the Craig's list ad.

I went. Not too much of interest to me: mid range Bianchi, Centurion, and a few painted fixie frames. A not too bad Gitane TdF with a little rust, (and an inflated sense of value). I did pick up some Cinelli bars/stem, and a Park truing stand.

Thanks for the vision. Tandems are tricky. We have a Burly tandem we've barely tried because it needs a rear stem. It seems super whippy which was disconcerting to Carol on our test rides. The Fuji might not be better, as de-whippifying tandems is recent technology.

I'll get the Burly into ridable condition in the spring and see if we'll keep it. There's the bike and there's the team. We don't know if we're compatible on a tandem of any kind, so that's an experiment by itself, and it might be hard to separate the problems with the bike from the problems in the team.

I think these are 2 kool Velos Francaises here.

Vintage La Pierre (LaPierre of course are still around making modern bikes); one doesn't seem many of these though this model may be "ordinary" and white: https://southbend.craigslist.org/bik/5364003956.html the head badge notes it is made in the same place that Dijon Mustard is.

A nice Astra Motobecane, project bike, wingnuts on the front wheel, no back wheel, Tour de France decales, it looks like it is from the '60s (Suntour Cable guides and I assume shifters added on after), Nervar cranks, chrome crowned fork with Motobecane "M" on, an Alvit rear derailluer and I haven't quite ever seen the Huret decal on a bike this one has, check it out! My experiences are limited and for $50, actually it'd make a nice project bike if one were in the neighborhood:

https://madison.craigslist.org/bik/5340639770.html Slick as can be really and I'm not a fan of the Astras which this is but this one is nice to look at.

I've never ridden a tandem, but one thing I remember clearly is my friend and I doing a century around 1981, we rode it in about 7 hours and beat everyone - except the one tandem, which beat us by quite a bit.

Yes, tandems can be fast if there isn't a lot of climbing. I remember reading a story by a guy with a triple bike. His teenage daughter and her friend were in the two back positions while he captained. The girls were chatting and not paying attention to their efforts. The triple team zoomed by a roadie pedaling with all his might, and he was humiliated, beaten by a couple of gossipy teenage girls.

That's pretty hilarious. I have a healthy respect for tandems, 2 (or sometimes 3) motors can really build some speed. I wish Grace and I had the room to keep one, I know we'd both really enjoy it.
