Components on an 89 Centurion Ironman Master?

What components were on this bike? 6400? Anyone know what BB and headset?
Trying to find a list if possible

Also, was the Master above or below the Expert?

Surely you have read this and T-Mar's by now?

Master is Tange #1 , but an Expert may suit a medium weight rider more, with a Tange #2 frame.

I have an 84 Comp TA and a 87 Expert.

Edit: I also have a Super Lemans, high tensile, on the way to the coop.

Yeah, I read Sheldons. Not T-Mar's. Not sure what that is.
Specifically I wanted to know what kind of equipment might be on it.

at 220lbs, am I too big for a #1 frame if it's a 56-58?

Aren't you supposed to be thinking about witch burning rather than bikes today?

I think it should be full tricolor EX group, good stuff.

Go for it, your fit/weight should be fine. Just go AROUND potholes and stay off the cobblestone streets.

Good to know.
Bike I was looking at turned out to be a 48cm, not a 58. Probably going to buy it for my wife instead. She'll have a better bike then me
*envy*

I was the 2nd call. I offered him $10 more than he was asking and he took it.
Appraisal forum is valuing it at $350ish... yikes.
I cleaned it up a bit today. It's nearly flawless. The only blemishes are some browning where the computer straps were on the chainstay.

That's what I thought. Probably read it somewhere. Maybe I learned it from, ah, RobbieTunes.
