The Carlton Jewel
John, here's an image of a classy racing bike of the 1950s It is a Carlton Jewel with beautifully crafted lugwork. Carlton mainly produced mass-produced machines but did, upon request, make these magnificent models. In those days appearance meant a great deal to the owner. Better, more practicable machines with lugless frames made from much lighter material came about and ended the days of The Jewel, The Flying Scot, and other wonders of the time.
