Fake or fortune? You decide, but those rear dropouts ain't like any 4-star I've seen :wink:

Looks awfully like the sl500 frame that was doing the rounds of Gumtree/eBay for the past month. The pump pegs, rack+guard eyelets in addition to the dynamo tab on the rear seat stay sort of indicate the intended usage (i.e. not a high-end bike) but it might make a cool retro commuter. I think that the stars had lost their significance by the 70s/80s.

Am guessing it's something like an SL Sports from the very early 80s or a Sportstar from the mid-late 70s.
Mmm, SunTour

From what I've read a Cavaletto is one of the lower-mid Centurions so I guess this isn't the original groupset,

But how much is a Superbe Pro groupset and an average frame worth?

I love a Centurion, and a Cavaletto was a good mid-range frame, and most I've seen/had were SunTour although I don't think the Cavaletto would have had Superbe and would have thought Cyclone/Cyclone MkII which was/is very good stuff. Personally I would buy that if I could get the seller down to maybe 180-200
