Finally got a Miami Vice Centurion!

Whoop whoop! $60 bucks!! My daughter LOVED the little 80's styling sticker accents on it! Guy rode it 6 times in the late 80's, been in storage since. The grease on the seatpost looks like fresh Campy grease!!!

What's the top tube measurement on it? This is obviously a different year, but my wife likes my MV Ironman and I'd like to find her one (not Terry style), but I'm not sure they ever came small enough.

Amazing find, amazing price. Is it in your size? If so, could be the only racing bike you'll ever need.

i assume you've seen some of the upgraded IronMan Centurion builds that Robbietunes has done, if you decide to go the STI route.
