I have been looking for a good loaded tourer for some time, mostly just for interest.
I started collecting some french touring bits in hopes of getting or making a good frame for them.
However the market was awash with classic tourers.
I had a live in with a mint condition 89 cannondale ST1000 but I just could make it work. Frame was too small.
Then I found a Fuji Touring series IV on CL! In MY SIZE!!
but after communications wit the seller he would not budge on the price. It looks great but I dont have $600 to spend here.
Low and behold my waiting paid off in the form of a cheap-as-chips centurion Elite GT
I waited for some portland sunshine to start falling and hoofed it 12 miles out and 12 miles back to grab this thing. Pretty happy with it, only needs minor work, mostly a tear-down and rebuild with new cables.
You want a picture right?
I know what you are saying to yourself....
Why is the fountain on in the middle of rainy February?
I dont have a straight answer to that.
