Imagine if we could get a ton of them together. What a colorful lot that would be.

Looks great. I like the wrap, but it also comes in that same yellow. Takes some searching.
Probably belongs more in the other Ironman thread, as this is mainly for data on the bike, to help those who want it/need it.
That other Ironman thread is like a greatest hit album.

Has anyone came up with a color code for the MV colors? I will need to do some touch up on mine & my sister in law's bikes and sure would like to paint a bottle cage the magenta color to go with the yellow on on the bike.
I'm also trying to figure out what I am going to do with the letters on the 105 crank set. Its worn partly off. I could polish it and do away with the letters or maybe reproduce the mat finish and somehow re stencil the letters back on.

The million dollar question. The catalog states it to be magenta, but that's like saying Blue.
I actually found what I thought was a perfect match to it however once I applied it it came out a lighter pinkish. It was close enough for government work though so I left it. I still have the bottle maybe a touch of blue would help it. Most importantly it's nail polish and is ok for frame touch up but probably not suitable for complete cage coverage.
As for the crankset (BTW I had the same problem) I've seen where forum members have use computer generated clear stickers that passed.
It should be stated my touch up techniques are not on the level of RT, Docs, or JD's. But more like jetboys.😁

'70 Dodge Panther Pink (code M3) has to be pretty close to the magenta.
Edit: Looks like it was called Moulin Rouge by Plymouth.
It was once available in Testors (model car) spray cans (part no. 28124) or Testors touch up bottles (part no. 2757).
This site also shows some possible sources for similar colors.

Perfect timing my wife is going to Hobby Lobby this afternoon for one of her projects. We live 50 miles from the nearest store of that kind so we have to have a reason to go.

89 Ironman Expert pedals

Everything I've read states this model comes with Sampson pedals but mine and several others I've seen photos of
have Shimano 600 pedals.The rest of my bike is completely stock so I'm wondering if you think these pedals were added
after the fact or did Centurion use some left over pedals?

So you don't think they could have used leftover pedals from the 1988 Master Ironman which used these pedals?

If you are referring to Sampson pedals, I know of no situation where they were offered with the bike, but stranger things have occurred.
The 1987 Master did come OEM with 600EX pedals. The shop gave my friend $25 credit for them when he bought Looks instead.

I have no idea if Centurion actually shipped any other models with pedals, but the volume of Suntour GPX pedals on the market is about the same as the volume of GPX stuff that came on the Ironman in 1989.
