Just bought a old Centurion Comp TA off craigslist
I havent ridden in a LONG time
Wondering what changes I should make if any.
The roads here in Honolulu are pretty rough, maybe bigger tires?
right now it has continental ultra sport 27x1&1/8
Also any suggestions for a relatively inexpensive odometer/speedometer?
any other suggestions are appreciated
I suggest just riding it and if it seems to fit your needs. If it works as is, sweet. Fatter tires will slow you down a tad...depending how wide you go. However I think w/ 27" rims the widest you can easily find are 1 & 3/8". It's good practice to just watch where you're going and avoid potholes...as long as avoiding them doesn't put you in greater harm. Your local bike shop should have a selection of bike computers in a range of prices. The brand CatEye is pretty popular.
I've been looking for an '84 Comp TA for a while.

may need a tune up
I bought a sport DLX back in the mid 80's
