Surely you wouldn't complain if a 1989 turned up? I think the marble is just as nice as the smoke.

You're welcome. It's been fun and satisfying to help so many forum memebers.

Since we're talking about the smoke paint scheme, here's another little tidbit I've uncovered for your Centurion page. The inspiration for the scheme was apparently Jeff Lindsay's small production Mountain Goat brand, which was offering a smoke paint job, as a $100 option, as early as 1987.
A big THANK YOU T-MAR for your hard work.

Here is a couple pics. I also could not find letter codes on the derailers,Just 4532,meada Ind. made in japan on both both.I'll take a closer look after she's cleaned up.
