Is the mid-to -late 70's Raleigh Competition high-end enough to be considered a Carlton shop model? Bought one in 1980 that had been sitting in the shop for several years. It had the Carlton seat tube banner....Serial no. WB5-05755.

I have the 1973 Raleigh catalog, together with a separate price list, printed on a card and dated April 26, 1973. In the catalog the International is described as being built in the Carlton works, and I am certain that my bicycle originally had a small decal near the bottom of the seatpost indicating it was built in Carlton.
> My International has the serial number G4380 stamped on the bottom bracket shell running parallel to the plane of the chain rings near the fixed cup. Also stamped in the center of the shell are what appear to be two T's with the stems likewise parallel to the plane of the chair rings.
> I don't know whether all this information is significant, but thought it might be of some interest to those interested in Raleighs.
