Carlton Criterium Retirement Refurbishment

Carlton Criterium Retirement Refurbishment

In 2019 my Dad retired so I thought it was the perfect time to carry out this project as a retirement present for him, he used to ride this bike to work in the 90s in Dublin. I smuggled the bike back to London and went about stripping it down & giving everything a deep clean. I found some nice replacement gold decals online & had the frame powder coated at Armourtex. Purchased some gold cable housings at BLB & a Brookes saddle at my LBS, who helped me put it back together.Managed to surprise him with it just before Xmas, he loves it!
