I just replace my beaten 60's Raleigh frame with a Centurion Accordo (about the same or a step under what you're looking at) and put a bit over 100 miles on it to work out the bugs. I really like the frame, comfortable, quick handling, very good quality for a low line bike. That's indicative of the entire Centurion line - if it's in good shape, it's a safe buy.
Next stop for mine is a teardown and off to the powder coater after the New Year.
