In the 60's I rode big heavy Schwinns & Sears. In the 70's I rode nice light Peugeots & Bottecchias. In the 80's I discovered Japanese bikes. Had a 88 Shogun Samurai. Now in my 60's. Still riding late 1980's Japanese bikes. Have a bunch of them. Right now my favorite one is a 1987 Centurion Ironman Expert. I've also got a 82 Centurion Elite. An 88 Centurion LeMans. And, a red 1986 Fuji Club. Plus, several others. I'm amazed at how cheap & easy these old Japanese bikes are to collect. My Ironman has been updated with brifters & racing wheels. It weighs in at 21-1/2 lb. Rides like a dream.
