Model:

Rapide

Brand:

Carlton

Late 70’s (1977 from memory) Road bike.

It is a Carlton “Rapide” which was made by Raleigh in Nottingham England as their prestige top tier model.

The bike has been fully disassembled and cleaned. All bearings have been checked and re greased. It has new brake and gear cables and a new chain.

The aim was to keep the original Patina yet make it a fully rideable reliable bike.

The Reynolds 531 frame still rides wonderfully and is a really comfortable yet responsive ride. Comes with 2 rear cassettes. One is a close ratio for ‘racing”, the other a wide gear spread to take on the hills. Front chain rings are 52/42.

Size is 56cm Top tube, 56cm Seat tube which unfortunately is too small for me,  which is the reason for its sale.

Brakes are Raleigh 610 by Weinmann and stop well. Levers are also by Weinmann. Brake hoods also carry the original “Carlton” logos which are pretty rare.

Front and rear derailleur’s are branded Raleigh but are “Huret” units.

Wheels are 27 inch with Sunshine “Pro-Am” hubs which spin great.

It still wears its original Brooks saddle and bar tape.

Weighs in at a respectable 10.5kg but rides lighter I think.

Tyres are originals and could probably do with Replacement.

No Pedals.

Thanks for looking.
