For this bike, nearly everything was replaced; the only vintage item is the classy-looking Sugino crankset. Highlights of the build include a Shimano/Mavic wheelset, IRD ratcheting thumb shifters, Soma Oxford handlebar, and a 9-speed 11/32 tooth cassette for a decent low gear.
The Centurion also features great stopping power via the new Tektro R539 brake calipers, controlled by the very cool looking retro-style levers. And you’ll notice that the cork grips have been treated with shellac for better durability and a nice light-brown color.
There’s adequate clearance for fenders if you’re trying to make it a rain-friendly rig for the impending wet weather.
