Classic & Vintage - 1986 Centurion Le Mans RS -- I'm in love!!
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I just got back from the Tucson Bike Swap where I found this 1986 Centurion Le Mans RS. It still had the brochure and warranty form hanging off the frame. It appears to never have been ridden or if so, just inside on a trainer (which might explain the computer speedo hookup). It's utterly perfect and rides so nice I almost cry.
Anyway, I'm so freakin' happy I just wanted to post and show it off!

Nice catch. Very sharp looking with the red and white paint treatment.

Nice find. Are you sure those quick releases are engaged properly? It could be photo distortion, but it looks like the curvature is concave rather than convex. Though I'm not sure how they could possibly secure that way.
That's just photo distortion -- the quick releases are fine!

Wow, got you a rare find there.
Hope you enjoy your Le Mans RS as much as I enjoy my Centurian 'Elite RS'.:D

Great bike, 52cm frame of really nice bike.
Now, we have this rule in the Centurion cult, you have to give up your first kill:
PO Box Centurion

Wow, just stumbled upon this thread years later, and just wanted to say: amazing find. I've had that exact bike since I got it in 86/87, and it's still running with nothing but new tires, pedals, grip tape, and a chain. Hope you're still enjoying it!
