I have just finished restoring this very
early and I think quite rare Carlton/Raleigh track frame set.
Judging by the frame number C2720, I would hazard a guess
that this would be from about 1968, 
but could stand to be corrected on this.

It has a couple of unusual features, most obviously the chromed 
and drilled seat stays and the drilled drop outs.
I had the paint mixed to match the original Raleigh
"flamboyant" pearl deep red and pearl blue.
I have tried matching this colour before, but have always been a
 bit disappointed, however this time the guys at Topaz paints
really nailed it, and it looks perfect( thanks guys).

A very nice frame set all over.
