Searching for Centurion

Newbie Danarello here. I'm on the hunt for a Centurion Master Ironman but will settle for a lower end model if in good condition. I was wondering what you guys think about this Centurion Le Mans RS on CL for $125. Not sure if it's my size (57 cm) but might be.

Centurion LeMans was always the lower - mid level model in the line up. Late 70's & early 80's models were pretty heavy bikes. Not much different from some Schwinn offerings. But, the last couple production years in 88 & 89 they were upgraded with Tange 2 framesets, Exage group sets, & nicer wheels. You can tell the late 80's models from the bright color paint jobs & trippy graphics. They made a bunch of Pink ones that are very nice bikes.

I think [MENTION=444618]Shady Rascal[/MENTION] may have a 58cm Ironman expert he'd be willing to part with.
