Ironman information sticky thread?

I know it's been missing lately but it was up last night. I was half way through it and wanted to continue today but it's gone again.

The sticky that was like 5 members just chatting together? Too many stickies in the c&v as it is. I could see the thread just turning into a normal one, but odd that its disappeared entirely.

there is this one too- Post your Centurion Ironman.. For the love of 80s paint jobs!

it didn't disappear. it looks like there was some heavy editing/post deletion, and the thread got locked. with the quantity of posting in this forum, the thread, now locked, will just continue to drop further and further from the main page, but it is (at least as of now) accessible to read.

Thanks for that link. I know it was included with the sticky threads last night, but gone again today. It's a great source for information, along with the other Ironman thread.

I started it long ago for information.
Never asked for it to be a sticky, nor did I agree with it being so, but it was what it was.
I deleted my original post, which wiped out the thread, I guess.
Appears the mods put it back. Their right to do so; this is not a democracy.
Thuggery comes in many forms.

Doesn't really matter. They're just bikes.

I never thought that I'd live to see the day when RT would refer to Centurion Ironmen as "just bikes".

Fortunately there's still the vintage-centurion website. It has pretty much the same thing as the (RIP) Ironman info thread, plus more. It includes all centurion bikes.
