Dudley MA swap meet

Not much vintage lightweight stuff this time, hopefully in the future there will be for. There was a nice Gloria cambio corsa frameset for sale, a selection of 1970s road frames from Allegro to Zeus(really a-Z), and some parts. Mostly rusty junky ol' American bikes. We did find a nice 1950s British bike- Chater lea bits and bobs, that I will photograph soon. Appears it might be a Claud Butler or someone else using Bilaminate lugs.

owner listed this chrome bike as a 1960 Carlton, but seems odd a 1960 British bike with a fully sloping fork crown. Any one see one that early? I would have placed a fully sloping fork crown on a British bike in the late 1960s at the earliest.
