The Sun Carltons
Production of Sun cycles was moved to Worksop about 1966.
I have very little information on the Sun marque and have no intention
of developing this, Carltons are quite complicated enough. A 1966 price
list gives the model range as:
- Snipe Plus
- Snipe Prestige
- Snipe Plus All Chrome
- Mass Start Professional
- Alpine '6'
- Sun Mist Sport
- Sun Mist Sport Ladies
- Sun Mist GT
- Sun Mist Sport '23'
- Sun Mist
More detail is given on the Sun Sirocco:
Cycles have always been acclaimed for their wonderful value, the new
Sirocco is the latest model in a long line and is no exception, for
it more than lives up to the reputation.
Featuring one colour scheme with each size:
21" frame —Bright Yellow—the popular race bred colour.
23" frame — Flamboyant Red — the colour always associated
Both finishes are attractively panelled with contrasting colours. Finally
set off with chrome tip front forks. Brooks B.15 saddle. 27" wheels.
Alloy bars and stem. Simplex gears.
At a very realistic price of ONLY £25 15s. 5d.
