It looks like the frame is legit but Iím not familiar with that serial number format. Iíd guess this format came along after the W format. Perhaps late 89? I canít be sure though.

I could be mistaken but I think the chrome Carlton Cobra was only available in 1973 so youíre 72 serial number is consistent with that. Beautiful bike and I like the idea for the new color scheme.
