Centurion lemans rs

Picked up this lemans rs today for $130 (decent price?) either way pickings are SLIM round here. Im having a hard time figuring out the year and whats stock and whats not. when i grabbed it, it had 700c wheels sunrims m13ii and a wheelworks cyclepro which i sold off and replaced in an hour or so.( hope that wasnt a mistake). Derailleur is shimano rsx rear (90s?) and a 70s campy front d. Rx100 index shifter. Dia comp brakes and sugino gpd crank.

questions, comments, catalogs, anything? lets talk bikes

I am not familiar with the brand but I would think the cranks, brakes, bar and stem and seatpost are likely the originals. The don't usually make much a gain in performance so are not a normal upgrade for owners or flippers (not the Dolphin).

Nice looking bike though

To my knowledge the Lemans rs and Lemans 12 are quite different.
