Raleigh Carlton Super Tourer

531 Reynolds frame Mon français est pas bon, de toute façon, je me suis cassé la vis pour le pédalier Simplex sur un côté. Je ne sais pas si elle a besoin d'une nouvelle vis, je l'ai utilisé pendant un engrenage Fixie un, mais maintenant, je l'ai mis tous les nouveaux dérailleurs sur. Raleigh super Tourer;

Frame:
531 Reynolds tubing, made in the late '70s but really not released until a Raleigh bike won the Tour de France cerca '80 because it has a sticker attesting to that.

Fork/Headset:
half chrome fork

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Stronglight

Pedals:
Lyotard

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Stronglight

Derailleurs/Shifters:
Simplex, varies, Shimano

Handlebars/Stem:
Changed the handlebars to a wider fit. Black cork covering works well.

Saddle/Seatpost:
Selle Royale , the one photo inside shows a mountain bike saddle put on just for a complete picture.

Brakes:
Weinman brakes, the kicker are the Carlton Brake Hoods. Took the brake hoods off of a what else? Raleigh Grand Prix. The hoods are embossed with the Carlton logo.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Maillard

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Atom

Accessories:
Rack, Lights.

More Info:
Have ridden it fixed and single speed. The 3 in one photo shows a Carlton brake hood and the decals denoting Raleigh won the Tour de France. My only regret with this bike is once, I was giving it a gentle cleaning and some decals washed off, I got replacements some years ago but in confusion, ended up getting the "Competition" stickers. More on the Super Tourer at Retro Raleighs, a few are around, first shifters were Suntour Mighty shifters, indexed which worked with so-so results.

I remember when these were new. Touring was king and Carlton built bikes held in high esteem. This was one of the best touring bikes of its day.
