Centurion Super LeMans

Hey! I picked this baby up for 120 on craigslists. It is fun to ride and shifts smoothly. All the parts seem fine and dandy. No bents or cracks on the frame but thats from a novice's eyes. Can you help me tell the year of this and any other concerns or problems ? Ill take it to my LBS in los angeles later. Will add more pics in a bit.

Enjoy!

BTW, brake lever hoods will add comfort.

Sweet thanks! Btw where can I find the serial Number? I've been looking everywhere, Turned it upside down and no serial number or anywhere in the frame. I'm guessing its under the bar tape maybe?

It should be on the bottom bracket shell. Not under the bar tape. You can look for date codes on the cranks. It's likely to be a late 1970's model.

Serial number may be on the seat tube, non-drive side, lower down, and stamped vertically (along the length of the tube). Probably starts with the letter "N".
