Including this 1947 Carlton Jewel (23"). Pretty bike! Too big for me though.

Also a 1950 Viking, a 1950 Holdsworth Monsoon, a 1951 James Arrow Ace ... No connection to the seller - just drooling! << ==================================================================

Pass the napkins, I'm drooling too! I was wondering what's involved in having the part of the seat tube chromed with other parts being painted. Is the whole frame chromed with the seat tube being polished in the area left exposed? What I think about is a Raleigh Pro with the silver portions in chrome rather than paint.
