I took delivery today of a mutt of a mid-to-late '60s Raleigh/Carlton Flyer today and have a question about some of the parts that came on it. I'm pretty sure they are not original to the bike.
Look at (the poorly lit digital pic) here:
These front wing nuts are unmarked except for "REG. No 875090" on the back of the serrated round "wing".
The rear wing nuts (though probably not part of a matched set with the front) are marked "Cyclo" (in quotes), "Benelux" (not in quotes) and "British Made".
The hubs are B-H Racelites. All the parts were NOS when the bike was built up after a recent repaint.
Any idea on what the front wing nuts are? Also, where did the Racelites fall in the B-H lineup?
Can you put a date to any of these components?
Thanks in advance,
