Wow!

Great scrapyard find. Bike looks to be in good condition. Have you read the Ashley Wright column about Centurion Bicycles at Sheldon Brown's site?

why is it that so many folks refer to Sheldon Brown as if he has the answer to everything. As if his opinions are statutes.
Is it just because he's compiled a lot of info in one place?
Is he some kind of cycling super-hero?

Sheldon was a good guy who spoke from experiance...so many people give advice/opinions based on "something I've read"

Sheldon has provided concise information in a central location that is easy to digest. So, yes he is a hero.
