My '84 Centurion Comp TA. Tange 2 steal on all tubes. Since building this bike up it's been my go to bike for commuting and leisure, it's just such a joy to ride.

Not sure we need a thread for this; this is already pretty much the "steel is real" forum.

Exactly. Whole forum is steel is real. Many threads broken down to specific model bikes or sub categories like sti shifter on classic steel bike and those threads already have 10-20 pages of replies

I just sold my one aluminum bike. I do have one steel bike with a carbon fork though: does that count as real?

Oh-oh. I have a couple aluminum forks (a Viscount "death fork" and an SR "Liteage"), but they're just sitting on a shelf not attached to any bikes. Am I a lost soul?
