I bought this bike used during my senior year in high school for $200 (1988) and rode it hard through college, including the occasional century, and then with grad school and a family; it then sat in the garage for the next 10 years. I recently dusted it off and took a closer look. It is all aluminum 7000 series tubing with Tange aluminum fork, Suntour Superbe Pro drivetrain and Gran Royal Comp brakes. I hear it was the first all aluminum bike produced by Centurion.The frame is near immaculate, but the drivetrain components need a major clean-up. It is bright yellow with black forks.
Has anybody else seen another Facet, or know the desirability of this bike? My research has only produced references to the other Centurion models (Iron Man, Accordo, etc.).
It still looks sharp and amazingly, weighs under 20 lbs.
