They're both nice bikes. My gut feeling sez the centurion is a better-built bike, but I don't have any hard evidence to support that - just vague memories. They're both quality materials, and the Japanese in the 70's and 80's were building good machines (still are, you and I just can't afford 'em any more). Go ahead and trade. A bike that doesn't fit just sits there, and they are only art when they are in motion.

oh, hey! you are just swapping frames, right? Parts might make the lion's share of the difference in a trade, of course...
