Centurion Pro Tour 15 Bike

Item Description

Centurion Pro Tour 15 Bike N4H0063
I think this was posted once before, as it's on one of my other tabs. Serial # and overall appearance indicates 1984, well into the 6-speed era. Oddly, Centurion opted for only 5-speed (thus the model name) freewheels on just their two touring models that year. Maybe for reduced dish (shrug)? The 40-spoke rear wheel and matched set of Cannondales are worth more than what it apparently will fetch, with barely 5 hours left.

Still, this appears to be the exception; still looks like shopgoodwill has been "discovered", as evidenced by the $190 closing price for this Stumpy - https://shopgoodwill.com/item/143107698 .

How is this one not LONG gone? The steel thumbies and slingshot are worth twice the price of admission.

I get the feeling that, even if I leave this frame sitting dormant for a couple of years, I'll still appreciate it when I finally get to it. Maybe I'm right? Who knows, but it spoke to me for some reason.
Those are AWESOME fixed and single-speed all-road bikes - here's how mine turned out - this would be an ideal frame for this setup!

Confusing ad also includes pictures of a Motobecane that looks very similar. And the ad includes text describing Cyclone derailleur, when the Shogun clearly has Deer head Shimano Deore...

https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/bi...469539443.html

Shogun 1500 Touring for 5'- 4" - 5'- 8" - $240 (Foxboro)

Very nice Shogun 1500 touring bike with Chromoly steel frame.
This is an honest to goodness touring bike with a long wheelbase,
Frame has braze-ons for adding racks.
19"/48cm frame should be good for a rider between 5'-4" to 5'-8"
10 speed drive train with Shimano Cyclone front and rear derailleurs.
The bike was just completely refurbished, tuned, lubed and derailleurs and brakes adjusted.
Brand new rear tire just installed.
Please text or call. Emails will not be responded to.
Sold for cash and pick up only.
If the posting is up the bike is still for sale. No need to ask.
Key Words: Trek 520, Univega, Fuji, Bridgestone, Specialized,

To add to this, I recently picked up a Super Tourer (very similar frameset) for a friend that was converted to a single-speed and she loves it. Set it up with 700x32c Armadillo tires so she can ride around the city without worrying about punctures.

@unworthy1 - I don't know the brand but it looks quality and more than worth the money. I'd have to consider a repaint (or powdercoat) as that bubbling rust would irk me.

1990 Eddy Merckx 10th. Anniversary Bicycle - Frame # 8768 57cm Vintage

1990 Eddy Merckx 10th. Anniversary Bicycle - Frame # 8768 57cm This hurts but it's time. Bought this about 10 years ago and used it (very) little ever since, indeed it's too nice for me to use as a commuter. Paint has a fair amount of scapes and chips, definitely ridden - but taken care of. Currently it rides wonderfully. Looking at the chain rings, the middle ring has some wear but life left in it. Needs some new bar tape and it'll really pop. I have the original manual and paperwork that was sold with it too. Shimano 105 Cranks/Derailleurs Shimano Ultegra Brakes Deda 215 Anatomic 26.0 bars Forte Pro SL Saddle Shimano Ultegra Hubs (6600 I believe) DT Swiss 700c RR 465 Rims Vittoria Zaffiro Tires (great shape) Not really trying to ship, but will at actual cost to buyer. Can meet somewhere in the New England area for interested buyers

I hope the training wheel is included. Would make for lot of extra Clunker Challenge points. Hardly any brake wear- this tiny thing is minty
