$100

You better hurry. A bike that nice & clean probably won't last long at $100.

Ad is still up, but +1 it won't last. "Turkey levers" done the right way, nice touch.

Price reflects "clueless seller" discount - nearly no text info, no drive side photo, quick-releases not set properly.

I'd love to get my hands on it. That's exactly the kind of bike I look for to convert to an upright handlebar city bike. Stem shifters work nicely with upright bars. So, all you have to buy is new handlebars, brake levers, brake lever cables, & grips. If you want to make it perfect install a new riser stem & Suntour thumbie shifters. If I could get it for $100. Put $100 worth of parts on it. I could sell it for $300. Be good. Have fun.

That's the kind of bike I would buy for parts to maintain my other bikes, fall in love with the paint job, then replace a couple things I didn't like, then have one more bike to maintain. And what's that white thing? Is that for holding a Foster's?

Some folks just want the garage cleaned out. Selling of $1 is better than throwing in the dump. I've bought better bikes for same, but I just like to ride them.

Looks like an '86, based on the color scheme - Centurion Accordo . And based on the level of components, it has the edge on that Zebra in your other thread, although that's a sharp bike with a brand name most haven't heard of. This one is a little more modern as well, with the aero brake levers, and I think by '86 it would have indexed shifting.

Ooooh! I really like it. Some new tires and TLC and this thing will look sick. I am definitely considering swapping handlebars for city/comfort riding.

Dang, why can't I "Like" that ^^^^^ twice?!?! That's effing ingenious. But does that constitute open carry, or concealed?

Somebody must have gone through that bike & upgraded it at some point. I would be surprised if it came factory original with red cable covers. Also looks like it might have "chopped" quill pedals. Original frame mounted front & rear reflectors. Clean as a whistle. What's not to like?

Super clean indeed, Ramzilla! Going to think about investing on the handlebars and the shifters for sure! Thanks for the idea, man!

This isn't a Centurion but, it's similar. Handlebars are Dimension brand 600mm wide, 70mm rise, 50 degree sweep. Riser stem is some no name part I got off ebay. I've been converting drop bars to upright bars for many years. But, recently it's been very difficult to get the parts. Many of my sources have "out of stock" messages on their websites. Be good. Have fun.
