A great condition Centurion. I love riding this bike but I really need to thin the heard even more. We all know the drill. LOL..

23.5" Frame CTT or 59cm
Original Crank with Drillium, original cluster as well.
Cinelli stem and handlebars
Added 700 x 32c Maxxis tires for a comfy ride. Also includes Brooks Pro saddle that is practically brand new. Brooks Microfiber bar tape. This bike rides really nice and full chrome underneath.
SOLD!
Please ask any questions and I'll do my best to help.

Beautiful bike. I'm glad it's larger than I like. I just bought a bike from the OP, hwheel72 , and it was a real pleasure.

This would be very hard for me to resist in the 24.5" size. Good luck with the sale. I'm sure this bike will make a new owner very happy soon enough!

Oof, glad you might pick this up - I don't need the temptation. Just sold off a bike to clear up some room, but it's JUST enough cash to swing this one.

Wait a few years. I tend to buy, ride, and enjoy bikes, then turn them over.

In the early 70's I saw one of these in an LBS in Fresno, California. It was perched up on a double bike stand up high. I'm pretty sure it was in the winter time, as the sun was streaming through the shop windows at a low angle, and caught the bike at an angle so as to make it glow. These are fully chromed with with I believe to be an enamel finish, so even the yellow color on top sparkled.

It was kinda like this:
