Centurion frame restoration. (photo warning!)
I posted this over in "Classic and Vintage" but I'll try here as well.
I acquired a 1984 Centurion frame this last weekend, and I want to restore it. It appears, and I hope I'm right, that the rust is only "surface" rust, and can be removed. I'm looking for advice on best practice to refurbish this frame.
I'm also looking for some opinions on the shape of things to come...i.e:
1) Single speed/fixed gear? Should be easy with those semi-horizontal dropouts.
2) Internal hub? Don't know if that will fit the 126mm spacing...but it would be cool.
3) 7 speed hub? Don't know if anyone even makes those...
Thoughts are appreciated.
Good night...and good luck
