This is mine which I was told was an ‘81 but think it might be an ‘82. I haven’t delved too far into it yet. Mine has EM seat stay caps, not signature.

There's no such thing as an 8 speed Centaur hub though.

Correct, it doesn't look like any of the parts are original but the frame should be a good frame to restore.

Well, there was that time that Campagnolo introduced Centaur as a MTB group.
I think it had a 7 speed cassette body as well as a freewheel option.

Centaur road started at 9 speed.

In 1984 the "over/under" ratio was ~50/50
The last "over" frames was built in 1986
