I recently purchased what is apparently an 84 centruion elite rs. i don't have before picks but it looked exactly like the pic posted by "machine age" except mine was in much worse shape. the frame was scratched up, bars were bent, rear axle was broken, it had a triple mtb crankset, and a oversized campy seatpost crammed into the seat tube.
i stripped it down, had it powdercoated, collected some used vintage parts and resurrected it. i recuilt with new bearings, the hubs and headset. the bar, tires and seat are new, the wheels are original, evrything else is used parts.
here is a link to a facebook album as well... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...059fbd6&type=1
