Carlton brochure 1971
Jerry Mortimore kindly sent me these scans of his 1971 Carlton brochure. This was the brochure I used to drool over and from which I finally bought my Carlton Pro based on the one in the brochure. Jerry is the Carlton marque enthusiast for the Veteran Cycle Club. Thanks for the memories Jerry!
