I'm completely new to the whole bicycle circus, and I needed a bike to participate in a 300 km competiition with some friends. I knew my dad bought "a red, fast looking bike" back in the 80, which was never used. So this christmas when I visited my parents I brought back this thing, and tonight when I search the web for it, it would seem as if this brand is of some kind of interest?

Well, it's a "Ferrari red", 12 speed, Centurion Super LeMans.

Serial: WAK15777C
Derailers: Suntour Cyclone dated april 1986 front, sept 1986 rear (according to the dating website)
Shifters: Suntour 'Power shifters'
Brakes: Dia-Compe (no idea on model)
Wheels: Araya 7000
Tyres: Threw them away, completely dried up. No idea.
Saddle: Kashimax 'Aero' dated 1984, I believe
Handle bars: Sakae GT
Cranks: Sakae SA dated 1986
Pedals: Haven't found them yet, somewhere in my parents attic
Hubs: Suzue Sealed-tech

I always thought it was a nice looking bike. Really mint condition, my dad used it like twice. Had no idea it was "special" enough to have a topic like this. Thought Centurion was a "no-name" brand . I'll try to post a picture or two if it's of any interest.

Well, wish me luck for the 300 km "Vattern runt" later this June!
