60cm Carlton Road Ace Vintage Racing Bike



A unique & rare cycle - we're familiar with the Raleigh Road Ace, but never before have we seen a Carlton Road Ace. Sporting an almost complete Shimano 600AX aero groupset (the hubs are Maillard), it's a fantastic 80s British race machine built using lightweight Reynolds 531 Competition tubing. The paintwork is wonderful too, with a subtle green fade in excellent condition.

As with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true without any dents or dings - please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
