SN WSM78C1745
"Hi-Tensile Steel" sticker on bottom of ST
Round, riveted headbadge - a large C with the words "centurion bicycle works" around the edge
Dia-compe front brake, with "D186B" stamped in the arm
Semi-horizontal drops, with no derailleur hanger.
SR stem
Sugino cranks -

Any idea what year this guy is?
Well, that's another new serial number format for Centurion! However, it appears to be based on a fairly common format, in which case it is likley a 1978 model.
