As I described in a previous post, this Centurion is basically a time capsule bike -- more than 18 years in an attic.
I did a partial tear down, cleaning and lubricating, and it didn't really even need that. While torn down, I decided to upgrade the components to 600 Tricolor, except for the brake levers and that big, funky 175mm Biopace crank, which does really mash up the hills. And I switched out the rear wheel/ 6-speed freewheel with a Titan wheel, freehub, and 13-23 7-speed cassette.
This is the one Centurion I have been looking for. Now time to ignore CL, avoid wrenching, and just ride.
Now the question -- go with the original white tape and saddle or go with black saddle and deep yellow tape? The following two pics are of the new 58.5/57.5 Ironman and my previous very small 51/53 Ironman. Which configuration do you like best?
And, below, more pics of the Centurion on a ride early this am.
