Hey. This is my first post. Love the site and access it alot.
I found a bike on the street, and I was wondering if anyone could help identify it. It's a Centurion, black frame with a sticker that says: HI-TEN high tensile steel tubing MADE BY MIKI.
It has a 'Made in Japan' sticker on the base with the number M5H04771.
It has suntour components and dia-compe brakes and levers....
from what I've read in threads so far: most single coloured Centurions where late 70's....?
and also the (70's) Centurians where hi-ten steel tubing? but from the serial number info it may be an '85. The components look pretty old to me.
It has no drill holes in the tubing for bottle cages....
It was covered in rust and dirt. As I clean it up... it's starting to look beautiful....
I love bikes but my actual technical knowledge is a bit limited.
Can anyone help at all?
