I sold this bike even though I loved the violent, scarred red paint, the shiny new chainring on the Sugino spider and cranks, the saucy tall chopped BMX bars. The buyer was drawn by the CL ad so write carefully and take good pics. Note the Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen sticker, a great outfit supplying bikes to the people. They helped me on several builds.

How much did you end up selling this bike for?
Justin, I got $125 from a tall young woman from Sacramento to use as a flatland commuter bike. The red and white Centurion head badge is very sharp-it was my website icon image for a while. Don’t strip off the patina, use gentle cleaning only on the vintage iron.
Oh, and what year is that?
I believe it to be around a 1972. The Centurion was a favorite of the late Sheldon Brown, bike guru. I liked building it but never built another Centurion, yet.
