Funny coincidence that you posted this revealing that sadly there aren't many pictures of this bike. I spotted one for sale a couple years ago and just happened across the files on an old hard drive. I saved the pictures because I love the paint job, I guess it's kind of one of my grail bikes (although certainly enjoying my purple giant as well)

Not my pictures. I think the lugwork and craftsmanship is better here than on the Giant. I wonder what happened to the fork though considering the rest of the bike looks barely used.

1985 Centurion Prestige
Replaced rear TT cable guide, so new paint.
Left the fork stripped.
New paint, so new VeloCals
American Classic Victory 30 wheels, 2 red spokes ea.
Ultegra 6700 with 6800 cranks.
Cinelli Frog stem.

I think. Sent a friend the frameset. He did the rest.

Looks great I'd kill up have that sticker on my bike, but it's got some alternate sticker set that looks annoyingly illegitimate lol..

I love my prestige, I've got some Campagnolo Zonda wheels on it and it feels like I'm being pushed from behind lol

Japanese made Bianchi Virata from around 1990 sitting on my local CL. Those have Prestige tubing.

If you want Prestige, their clear coated Nudity is nice as well (though brazed not lugged).


The Tange Ultimate-tubed, lugged, Cameo is a real winner too (though it's too bad about the straight forks):

They seem to retail at about 3k USD and above.

Not fond of the Nudityís sloping top tube, but I dig the discoloration at the joints. The Cameoís lugs are insane, and agreed re the straight fork.

Oh, I was so entranced by the discoloration of the Nudity, I didn't even notice the sloping top tube. Those lugs on the Cameo though are something else.

For me its more of a question of aesthetics. Too much bling detracts from the frame.
