Gotcha...the 'investment' is already made. On the Miyata, by 'the tube which said 1024' do you mean the fork? If so the frame might be CrMo steel, lighter and 'better' though it's not necessarily a big difference. The bikes are very similar models, but one may be more recent than the other, and Japanese bikes got steadily better during the 80s, so if it's a Lemans of 1984 it could be a much nicer bike than a Miyata 110 of 1982. Or vice versa.
Also as you note, the Centurion is in better shape. Do both bikes fit you?
