Carlton Corsa 5

I very happily picked up my new to me Carlton, in pretty original condition, Simplex derailleur and wheels pretty far gone


Here are a couple of pics of it with another wheel set and a couple of tyre choices.


I will change out the derailleur to a Suntour . . . possibly a BL or AG or Suntour 7 and a single down tube shifter.

Wow, that's a trip down memory lane for me - I remember this model, Tru-Wel 205 tubing if I recall correctly? Mid range in 1972 but a great ride nevertheless. I'd go with the gumwall tyres, Suntour rear mech, new chain and bar tape - then you'll be good to go! Nice catch.

A Huret Allvit derailleur would look good on that bike. Better yet if you got one with the red idler wheels.
