Carlton Track

Pretty.

s-l1600cp

Very nice complete late 1960’s Carlton/ Sun Worksop track bike.
This would have been made in that brief period when
Carlton (Raleigh) was running three teams in the British Professional road/track scene.
One of those teams was Sun-Truewel, which was really the last Hurrah of the Sun brand.
From memory this team only competed for two seasons in the late sixties, at this
time they made available team replica frame sets.

Check out a little more Sun race history at my
The Flying Wheel blog
