It's probably a 1985 but I don't have any in the database with that format. Regardless, we'll require pictures for the appraisal and that will allow us to corroborate the year.

Centurion's Classic Tange high tensile steel bike. Has threaded eyelets for touring gear. If it's complete & in good condition maybe $150

I can't recall seeing a hi-tensile Accordo. Circa 1982-1983 they were Tange #5, which was plain gauge CrMo. After that they switched to seamed, butted CrMo. If this on is circa 1985 as I suspect, then it would be Tange Infinitiy, which was basically a seamed version of Tange #2.

Lower end Centurion bike. $150 would be tops IMO and only if everything like tires, bar tape, chain, cables and brakes were rider-ready.

Entry level Centurion bikes have good frames. Put a new set of wheels & bunch of other new parts on it & it will last another 50 years. Would make an excellent upright handlebar conversion.

And yet I have had no interest for a clean dave scott red white, shimano 105, 54 CM, at $240. I don't do ebay for bikes.
Surprised, but CL buyers don't know what the hell a Centurion is.
Oops, maybe I broke a rule. Oh well. I will find out.

Nice Ironman. Handlebars need to be adjusted. It would probably sell pretty fast in Atlanta for that price.
