Centurion DB Master build

Picked up a Peugeot donor bike with 105 1050 Series parts, cheap, too small and a bad repaint. Went to the local bike swap hoping for a frame.
Got a 60 cm Centurion DB Master TG for a good price.
Later model Centurion's are pretty rare around here, most are the old school ones.
Serial # says it is a 1987. Surprised, it has lawyer lips on the fork.

Built up quite nicely. Used a set of 105SC brakes as the 1050's were nutted. Odd, the Peugeot headset was JIS. Amazing how hard it is to find a silver 1" threaded headset now.
Trying out one of the Adamo saddles for a laugh. Was just around the neighbor hood today, everything seems to work great.

So is this a Canadian model? I assume its not the German company that used the Centurion name and had a quasi relationship with WSI.

I always thought the tg stood for tig. the master TG's around here are tig welded and true temper. - is yours tange? it looks like a 87 ironman expert frame.

edit: but we did not get any in that color! . also do you ride an airhead?
