Carne’s Carlton Catalina Restoration Project


Things have gone all retro lately at Legs, Feeling No Pressure. First I experienced an intense mental nostalgia-bomb when I saw a 1995 Kona Lava Dome on the street near my work Рnow Carne is posting pictures from his own retro restoration project.


In his own words:

Ebay purchase catalina mystery bike with strangely offset back wheel – bit of frame rust . . . can’t decide whether to restore or convert.

‘Strangely offset’ eh? Maybe go for ‘restore’. That metallic red should buff up nicely. My favourite touch is the Huret speedo dial with built-in odometer:

Huret Speedo.
