Machine/frame arrived here painted/badged as a Viking. Quite a forlorn looking item with some pitting to the frame. Closer examination revealed the Oscar Egg lugs. Double tapered laterals, twin roller on the RH BB, curved, reinforced seat-stay bridge, round forks with a nice ‘twin plate’ crown. (Oscar Egg?) Serial No. is C00353, which says 1948-51ish…..
Interesting one to research as it turns out. No evidence in late 40s, early 50s catalogues of Carlton mixte frames. This one predates the Courette by a good few years.
