What kind of Centurion is this?
 
Am not pursuing this bike at all.....too big for me.....but was just curious as to what kind of Centurion it was. I first thought it might be an old pro tour, due to the all chrome.....but am not sure.....any ideas, fellow Centurion enthusiasts?

Seller only wants $200 for it.

The way that headbadge is attached is obviously NOT original. So perhaps its a refinished frame (was not originally chrome), or it may not even be a Centurion.

Certainly chrome + road bike + barcons + red hot market = won't last very long (size is the challenge of course).

Yea, I was slightly suspicious about it being a centurion, as well, because something just didn't look right about it. Thanks for pointing out the headbadge.....doh! :o Certainly still could be a centurion.....just not positive what the heck model it is.

And yea, it'll might sell fast in Portland, Oregon.....anything nice that is less than 300 usually goes super fast in Portland.

Although, as you said, that size might be problematic. Took me forever and a good discount on the price to finally sell a pretty good condition 62cm Motobecane Grand Jubile earlier this year.

Looks like it might possibly be an older(70s) Super Le Mans......

The crank and derailleurs look like they came on a Centurion Pro Tour 15 speed touring bike. However, if I remember correctly, the bike came with Dia Compe cantilever brakes. The handlebar assembly is not original and the headbadge looks funny. Looks like some kind of bastardization bike.

Headset looks kind of goofy, as well.

With the chrome that good, and the headbadge obviously kludged on there, something is wrong with this bike. It will probably sell anyway.
