83 Centurion Pro-tour

Looking to share this with someone who has a hankering for a great credit card tourer.
$225 + shipping.
I bought this stripped of the paint because the previous owner wanted water bottle bosses on the seat tube so the chrome was stripped for about 6" on the seat tube.
I painted the satin black strips and vinyl Centurion stickers.
I will include both down tube cable stops and DT shifters.

I think it is a 56cm CtT. Really rides nice. The cantilevers are better set for 27" wheels but it works with 700c.

Including frame, fork, grand Cru headset, and brakes. No seatpost clamp bolt.

$300 + shipping.

Cool frame and Id say full tourer not just credit card.

1983 catalog has these listed in 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25 (not too common to see no gaps huh?). Yours appears to be the 22 or even 21. I dont think its the 23/58cm unless its just the angles of the photos.

I'm pretty sure it's the 22" size (56cm)(center to top). I've seen a few 21" examples and the head tube lugs are closer together where you see them on the back side of the head tube.
I found an 84' catalog online. Where did you find an '83 catalog if I may ask?

I found one in the handlebar bag of a Pro Tour I bought a couple of years ago. Sent a copy to vintage-centurion.com.

Agreed on 22"/56cm. I'm looking at my 23"/58cm (serial number very close by the way!) and the headtube is proportionally longer.

Bump
I found a nice set of 27" wheels with decent aluminum rims and Sansin sealed bearing hubs with Sansin skewers
With wheels $250

I purchased this for $225 and have added the DT modified cable stops, a set of Aero DT shifters and now these wheels.
