Decent looking bike. I'd date it early 1970's going by the Campag brakes which appeared about '69/70, and the cable clips on the top tube.

Stunning :smile:. Shot in stays, chrome, chromed top to the fully sloping forks points to a late 60's very early 70's professional. Was usually in the Classic Carlton blue and white. Iirc the Giro D'Italia had less chrome but looked similar. The frame numbering out that time is a bit pants, the G is near to my F numbered Carlton which I think is 1972.

Lovely large flanged hubs and shot in stays.
Looks like a smashing bike there.

I seem to remember the Contre La Montre model of the very early 70s had the similar look too. Number in the BB shell with a letter prefix would indicate early 70s. A Giro would seem to be the model, the Criterium of the same period had the seat stay treatment too.
