Centurion Single Speed

4 Dec

80’s Centurion E Lite RS 58cm converted into a Single Speed. She is made in Japan with CR-MO Tange 2 steel, double butted and lugged with thicker Shimano dropouts front and rear (horizontal), with standard spacing, 126mm rear and 100mm front. Standard BB shell with Shimano BB 109mm spindle, standard 1” headset which is an older steel Japanese Tange Falcon headset freshly packed and mounted with a Modolo 1” quill stem with 100mm reach, the drop bars are also Modolo with interal cable routing, wrapped in new Cinelli black bar tape. SR Laprade seat with a new Forte Pro RS1 seat, o so nice and comfy! Has the usual scratches that one would expect from a 20+ year old frame set. Both front and rear brakes are new Tektro recessed brakes with Leechi brake levers. All new cables and housing allowing for a very soft touch to come to a screeching halt! The drive train is a pair Sugino cranks with a Sugino 48t chain ring and a new 18t Shimano freewheel and a new Z chain, with new pair of Wellgo ultra light track pedals. The wheel set is brand new and just came out of a box, SWEET! They are 32 hole Mavic CPX22 medium V laced to a pair of Fomula hubs etched Origin8 with stainless spokes and nipples, the rear is flip flop with threads for cog and lock ring but is not included. Just laid down some Velox rim tape, new tubes and a brand new pair of Vittoria Rubino tires 700×25.
