Silver Centurion Track Bike.

I have an silver centurion track frame. From the 80's does anyone know where i can find some info on this bike? Or how much it would be worth. It has horizontal track drop outs.

Are you trying to sell it? EBAY.COM.

Build it up: talk here.

It'll be worth what you sell it for, nothing more, nothing less.

are you sure they're track dropouts or are they just horizontal? I just checked the centurions on FGG and they all had horizontal road dropouts. If you've really got track drops maybe that would be something special. maybe. if you do put it on ebay send a link. I prefer orange bikes but silver might do.

The point WK was trying to make was that anything is worth whatever the marketplace decides it's worth and an auction will determine that. Bike frames are now commodoties, just like lumber or fish.

NO, it is a track bike they made them in the Mid - late 80s . They were black and silver.

they may get 300.00 for it.

Centurions are sweet! I have an Accordo from the 80's that is almost the same. It's a road bike though, obviously. My girlfriend rides it now. Are you selling the frame?

im not selling, i was just wondering if anyone else might have this model or know a little bit about it...why/when it was pulled, or discontinued. ...how much would you buy it for? haha. this bike cleaned up real nice and has got me interested in other centurion models.

That was their only one. they only lasted about 3-5 yrs maybe. This what I think.

The mountain bike era was coming in when track and road bikes was leveling off 1990-1992 time frame.
