centurion QLD

... that should read "...has not been ridden for a while... since the first three times when bought" :P Nice. Small though.. + BioPace cranks. 8)

Another Centurion Brissie 'burbs. :Looks about a 56. Not sure about that fork/head tube line though. :|

THAT is a beautiful bike.

PS. My friend bought the yellow Suntour from gumtree that was posted a few pages back. Rides beautifully, well maintained, he's thrilled.

Possible (emphasis on possible) geoffsco in Tamworth. Looks about 56. Crappy pic, but looks nice nonetheless.

And quote of the week, on a TREK MTB; gumtree
Rides smother then mountain bike. Thin tyres make it easier and faster to pedal gears change perfectly
:?:

And someone's had an F.W Evans stolen, Melb.

Thats cheap just for the parts. The front wheel clearance is next to none though. Either a good quality frame, or head on damage.

$1,000,000.00 - well technically it is $1,000,900.00, but I am sure if you haggled the seller would come down a bit :wink:

I was going to suggest the seller tried to drop the price from 1000 to 900 but didn't have the skills, but I like your explanation better

Got to love a colour matched stem. Kuwahara built touring bike. Ishiwata tubing! I considered buying it for a friend, it would look really nice slightly de-cluttered and with drop bars on it. I think I'd have to swap the stem though, and that would be such a shame. :lol:
