This bike is kind of a hodgepodge of parts I could find at my local non-profit bike parts place, you never know what you'll find.
After weeks of scouring the internet, I've realized this is a '79 Centurion elite.
The ride is really smooth and sure, I love this bike. I guess I'll have to get this one powder coated and find a head badge somewhere. 105 7 speed DT shifters have been installed since the main photo was taken and she makes a nice allaround bike.

People who friended this bike Tracker, campystamp, rburnham13, Zephyrus, per.k
