Anyone know the tubing material of a 1989 Centurion Le Mans

I had the opportunity to check out another persons Centurion. He just got what appears to be a 1989 Centurion Le Mans (I can't find "Super" or "RS" anywhere on it, so I think it's a plain "Le Mans". It has a white/purple-pink/white fade paint scheme (the fork is all white). He and I couldn't find a decal detailing the frame material, but their is a chance that the bike shop sticker was stuck over it, down by the bottom bracket. Anyone know for sure what type of tubing this model/year of Centurion Le Mans was? Thanks in advance.

Do you know where the original tubing decal would have been located? By the bottom bracket or by the seat clamp?

On the seat tube directly under the top tube junction facing forward.
