Here is one that I just finished. Pretty easy cleanup. The original seat was gone but everything else was there. At some time, this bike was sold in Beverly Hills. It also had a sticker from Chico, CA on it. The Carlton factory sticker is missing. This one needs a new home.

Beautiful bike , TT331FB... How can you bear to part with it?

+ What kind of stem is that? (It looks like an AVA)

I noticed that most of the SCs here were '70s English, so I thought I'd add in an American (and by american, i mean Japanese) SC to show the diversity.

I don't know! It was on the bike as given to me. My well driller found out I liked old bikes. This one was his. He used to ride it to school and work. His boss gave him a bonus and told him to buy a car. He went out and bought another bicycle, rode it to work, and got fired!

But I was worried that they'd get bored. But they never did. They said that the bike went faster than the car. I guess it feels that way because (1) it's lower and (2) it has no suspension. But it was fun for them!

How many little ones do you have?

My daughters are 21 and 18 now. I'll be an empty nester in nine days. Eek.
I had a trailer for them when we lived up in Maine but around here there's lots of hills and lots of cars and skinny shoulders so I gave it away. I've got a 3 (almost 4) a 6 and a 12 year old girl.
Only 4995 days till I'm an empty nester. Will you be lonely?

No, it's a Huret. I trash-picked my bike, and this was the set that came on mine. I still have them. I would use them, if they worked, but the lateral travel isn't sufficient.

You wanna try my Campy Gran Turismo derailleur? It's a scream. As in, it's nuclear-bomb-proof, but it doesn't shift so well. It also weighs about a pound!

Here's a new acquisition and one I've never seen before: a 1972 Super Course Carlton-built mixte frameset. Interestingly, the Raleigh catalog from that year only lists a men's model. Also of interest is that the BB threading is standard English, not Raleigh 26tpi:









Remnants of the Reynolds 531 decal and a classic Carlton wrap-over seat stay treatment (that seatpost is currently stuck, but I'm working on it):










The finish is in great shape in some places, not so great in others (it looks like it was left laying on damp grass on its left side for a few years), and it's a 21" frame, which is my wife's size (though she already does have a Raleigh mixte).

Interesting head lugs on the mixte. It looks like the same lugs as a Super Grand Prix, or a Sprite? Maybe there were no mixte Nervex Pros to use on the build?,,,,BD

Never heard of it or seen it. Do you think it was built for another market?

I assume you mean non-US market? Given that the '72 catalog online is for the US, I'm guessing it was likely a non-US item. Another mystery from Raleigh!

I just got this done this weekend. It's got most all of my more desirable parts (Cinelli bars, Sugino Mighty, etc) in an effort to make more saleable. S3X wheelset from BD on a '73 Capella-lugged SC.

very nice.

Interesting to see the blue primer peeking out from underneath the paint scratches on the top tube. Noglider's Super Course has the same color primer and it always seemed a bit of a curiosity to me.
