    A month ago I bought a bike off CL for $100. Cheap, right? And it looked a pretty red in the picture.

    To make it rideable, I ended up straightening the dropout, adjusting the RD (the FD was...

    Thanks to all. Just to close this thread out, I found an '84 Centurion Lemans which came with a 110 BCD crank - rare for its day, apparently. That crank came with a 52x40 (not 52x42) crankset. It...

    Wow, if it's truly a mid-sixties Raleigh, it's certainly worth the asking price of $150. But I wonder if it isn't a bit newer than that . . . . Lovely old bike, though. Wish I lived closer, I'd be...

    Here is the Super Course with the 110BCD (filched from an '84 Centurion Lemans 12) and the 34T inner chain ring installed.

    I put 3/16" black nylon plugs into the holes that once anchored the...

    Some months later, with the Super Course now mostly dialed in and correct. Ultegra brakes and hoods have replaced the OEM DiaCompes, Weinmann wheels (threaded to accept a freewheel) have replaced...

    Both cranks are marked "Sugino." The Centurion Lemans RS came to me with a Sugino 144 and a 52x42 chainring set. The Lemans 12 came with the Sugino 110, and a 52 x 40 chainring set. That second,...

    :-) The dark side.

    Yeah, the name is kind of silly. But the bikes seem of good quality.

    The "touring" Lemans 12 has a 110 BCD and a 52 x 40 chainring set. The Lemans RS has a 144 BCD and...

    Thank you. Looking back, perhaps one of the reasons I enjoyed my old Nishiki so much was the fact that it rode on 1 1/4" tires. On the flats at least, the ride was sublime. . . and I'm thinking of...

    :-) nice catch. My son had set the scale to kilograms. I didn't notice. But the cabernet was excellent.

    I'll edit the OP. Thanks.

    And I guess the point is this: Given that the 2 frames...

    Thank you, Andy. I'll admit I was surprised by the very small difference in frame weights; the two are virtually identical. I understand that the Tange 2 product is superior . . . but real world,...

    Rebuilding 2 Centurions

    Picked up two Centurion Lemans - a Lemans 12 and a Lemans RS - a couple of weeks ago. One was a basket, the other was nearly road-worthy. Never mind. I've torn them both down to the frames and will...

    Thanks. That's what I also thought - was surprised by the term "unsightly."

    But not offended. A beautiful female derriere is probably "unsightly" to a gay man. To each his own.
