Yeah, that would surprise me too. Instead, I get beer bottles thrown at me and cold drinks, yelling at me to get the f-ck off the road. :notamused:

I'm glad you got a positive experience though.

Take some kind advice, dont tear it down and paint it if its in relatively good condition like you say it is. Just clean it up and do some maintenance on it so it will ride good and be safe. That...

I've studied those contraptions at length and still cant figure out how you would get off that thing, unless you stand on the pedals and jump off the saddle, more or less sliding down the frame. But...

Never heered of Appel before, but it sure looks good. I like those colors, and with Shimano '600' you cant go wrong. Need some more pics of that bike please, like the tubing stickers, brakes,...

My My, the sh't people do. I have no earthly idea why someone would drill holes like that in the downtube. My advice is to braze it up and repaint the area with a close matching automotive touch up...

generally a rear derailleur used for friction shifters will not have a barrel adjuster on it (where the shift cable goes into the derailleur). Indexed will have a barrel adjuster, so you can fine...

This is a good idea actually, but only after you've soaked it good with PB Blaster. If you dont have a vise wedge the seat (a junk one) between two sections of 2 x 4 nailed to the floor, then twist...

What 'Giacomo1' said. The Looks wouldnt be original to your bike. If you are more comfortable with clip 'n strap pedals then by all means go for it. Sounds like you got a great bike so congrats and...

Welcome to the Centurian club. If not, we need to start one (Robbie you listening). Get you some automotive touch up paint and fix those booboos and that old Centurian would look great.
