I intentionally skipped yesterday in the hope one of you might pony-up and start the bidding on MSB’s Peugeot up for auction but alas, it appears we’re all a bunch of tire kickers. Today we’re back regular scheduled programming, so kick away!
This is Ryan B’s (girlfriend’s) ’89 Centurion Ironman Dave Scott. This color combo reminds me of when my daughter dresses herself.
Model: Ironman Dave Scott Master
Drivetrain: Full Shimano 600 grouppo
Frame and fork: Tange 1 tubing
Price paid: $150
I picked this bike up for my girlfriend. She wanted to make it a little more girly so we did a few modifications.
So let me start by saying I LOVE Centurion bikes. They were very well built. Light, nimble, smooth, great paint and finish. Plus they usually came specked with nice stuff. I would really like to get one of these frames in my size….preferably in the smoked gray/white color. Anyways, this is how it has progressed….
Ultegra/Mavic Open pro wheelset
Light blue Pro Race 3 tires
New cassette/chain, and red bottle holder
New cables with purple housing
New Cane Creek SC1 brake levers (The old Shimano 600 hoods were beat up and VERY hard to find)
Purple bar tape
