Centurion Expert Ironman Shimano 105's

Here is my original bike i got from my dad. i believe its a 62cm and was pretty big for me (I'm 5'7). Very smooth ride, fast, and felt light compared to an even older Firenze GL5000 i had in the garage. It has shimano 150 parts and some slr brakes that i find much better than my other ironman bike. Guys know how much its worth??

You might want to swap that stem and handlebar to your smaller '86 to bring it closer to original. This one is an '87, by paint and SN. Cleaned up you could easily get $200 or more depending on your area. As is, it might bring $150 here, maybe less.

+1 what he said. It's a very desireable bike in good shape, no rust, and that size. He's had a couple, knows what he's talkling about.

That color is not common in the "straight" fade. That bike, cleaned up and lubed, no rust, would bring more than the 1986, in my opinion, but the 1986 model is in better shape. Both are easily upgradeable, and this 1987 should be a 7-speed.
