Thanks shoota, but this is a keeper. I've had some great finds over the years but this wall art had me grinning all the way back to my car. Even my oldest son who has put many miles on Nike running shoes thought it was pretty cool. Cheers, Kevin

This is a nice catch; just the right combination of versatility, cool components, vintage appeal. I'd like to find one of these for 50 bucks.

I needed an early front derailleur, and it's going to be perfect for my Flea Market Mystery Bike-Info Needed.
Very nice, and very difficult to source to put it mildy. It took me forever to find one to replace the damaged unit on my '63 Paramount - It wasn't cheap either...

Thank you. I already solved the doubt. I have an equal seatpost, which was given to me. It seems to be a Profile Design.

Sure, I used Mother's brand cleaner wax but I imagine any light rubbing compound would work.
Didn't completely get rid of the yellowing but definitely looks better.

Brilliant! Tx, doesn't hurt that Schwinn decals, like most of their stuff was more robust and tougher than not.

There was more. He runs with shimano cleats and there were a couple of pair of DA pedals that I talked him into. I guess the PO also raced Mustangs. Some of the tools are stamped Ford.

I picked up this '90 Marin Eldridge Grade a couple days ago. I gave it a complete overhaul. It was missing tires, a front wheel and had mismatched cranks. I replaced those parts with parts bin parts. I have a total of $25 invested in it.

80's Schwinn Centurion????

I found this in my local classifieds

It's a very nice looking bike, but I'm a little confused would this be considered a hybrid or was it easier to find the schwinn decals

@Gashepherd Is it a heavily photoshopped image of what looks to be a pretty decent Centurion? My guess is in the real world the real decals are still on the stolen bike. Which sounds ridiculous actually, but there it is.
It's also a 70s bike, not 80s.

@curbtender That Peugeot is pretty sweet! Nice find there.

I'm sure that they are real pictures, he says it's got new paint and decals, the whole ad he's convinced it's a schwinn.
I think that it's a really confused centurion

It looks to be, perhaps, a Super Lemans. Notice, though, that the rear triangle is chromed but the fork doesn't appear to be.

This one should have had decals that read 'pass,' because it has it written all over it.

Yeah, the second pic confirms that. I'm endlessly amazed by the way people can misidentify a bike when the correct answer is literally riveted to it.
