A road bike I recently found is a Diamondback type of Centurion, an Interval model that has lugs and Tange Champion #2 CrMo tubing, also has 'Super Radius CrMo Blades' welded for the fork. Paint job is the white to mottled blue shark skin looking fade. The top tube sticker reads 'Centurion Designed Interval'. Serial number is U91223395.

Components:
Brakes: Shimano BB-A500 SLR-S 49mm
Shifters: Shimano Light Action SL-A500
Derailleurs: Shimano Exage 500EX (front one says 'narrow')
Crankset: Shimano Biopace Exage 400EX 52/42
Rear Hub: Shimano FH-HG50
Front Hub: KK K-8
Wheels: Araya black 700c

This would be a 1990, correct? Is there a specs list for this model somewhere?

I figure it's mostly original except for the front hub and not sure about the wheels. Not sure how the 400EX crankset got in with all the 500EX stuff.

I've also got a Diamond Back Topanga mountain bike. If you want the serial number for that one let me know.

FYI if anyone hasn't seen this already -- here's a page that has a 1990's Shimano Group hierarchy with component serial numbers....
