Judging by the rear wheel it seems to have seen little use. if it fits I would certainly try and haggle a bit however from the prices usually posted for these $170 seems reasonable. esp in Calif.



Selling my mid 90's womens centurion road bike w/ complete shimano 105 group set, nitto stem and bars. Good condition, needs to have the chain cleaned along with the cassette. Besides that this bike is in beautiful condition.
$170 obo

I would look at it this way, (and make sure you take a good look at the bike before you pay for it):

$170 is really a piddling amount of money to spend on a wonderful machine that will take you places forever.

In my opinion - That bike, if it fits you, especially with the 105 group, is a bargain & a treasure. Where I live we see stuff like this ad below, for a 40-year-old Centurion:

Considering Centurion stopped using the name "Centurion" in 1990, I'm not sure thats really a mid-90s?

Good deal for the price, will need work. +1 Bike is more like late 1980s, versus mid 1990s. Doesn't really affect value.

That style bike is designed for someone around 5 foot tall.
