Just got a new road bike but it has had a re-spray so I can't I.D it
Serial number number starts with the letters MOM so maybe someone out there may know which company used these letters.
It came with a near full (missing head set) 600 Arabesque group if that helps.
Will take some pics if the MOM serial isn't enough.

Some pics would be great. I am a bit of a Centurion buff. They made some real junk, all the way through to some very nice hand made racing frames. The higher end models were often fully chrome under the paint. Pics of the seat lugs and front lugs/forks will be enough to identify the model. Also, what size seat post does it take?

The frame is quite nice, no lightweight, but well put together, and has a lovely sloping forkcrown.
I built it up with some 700c wheels and diacompe long reach brakes and did a few brevets on it but lately have been thinking about restoring it to its former glory.

took a look at your pics. From the pics and serial number the frame is from Miki of Sakai Japan.
Several brands sold Miki frames. Centurion is one possibility, also Bennett Sebring, Hallmark Steed, Graecross Constellation.
