Vintage Ladies 22" Carlton Courette cycle (5'7" owner) £50

Great vintage project
Ladies 22" Raleigh Carlton Courette 'touring' cycle. I have the original purchase receipt (1984!)
My wife used this for a bit then bought a hybrid, so it gathered dust. Always been kept in shed/garage, not out in the elements.
Lovely pale blue metallic mixte frame - see attached photo.
What not to like? as follows:
Saddle had a suede finish which is now faded/shabby.
Handlebar 'grab-ons' foam covering similarly dated and shabby.
Rear rack is plated chrome - not great.

BUT ... the rest is good! Very little and minor paint damage. All mechanicals work, but obviously could do with a good strip, lubricate, polish after this storage.
Offering this for £50 to clear. No offers please, I've discounted this to sell, this is not an opener price.
Come and view if you like (Gloucestershire), or contact me through the site for any other details/pics you want. 'CTC' member sale.
