1978 R&R Centurion

I put this R&R together to duplicate my old R&R bitd. I put an extra long seatpost  to avoid crack below the seatclamp. I remember going to a muffler shop just to get my old r&r weld below the seatclamp. I end up selling my old R&R which I really regret but I'm happy I found this one.
70s box handlebar
70s SR doubleclamp neck
70s SR three-piece crank
messenger seat
Morris mags
redline nondrilled fork
KKT rattrap pedals
Diacompe double seatclamp
new centurion decal .

Re: 1978 R&R Centurion

Beautiful bike!  Love the parts selection!

Was the fork always painted black (the mild steel version) or is it nickel or chrome beneath (ChroMo version)?  Not too many of the mild steel versions around.

Re: 1978 R&R Centurion

I'm not sure about the redline fork if it's steel,nickel or chrome.  It was already powder coated black when I got the f&f. But I'm pretty sure the fork came with the R&R when they first distribute it back then. So I'm going with nickel since most of the R&R with redline fork nondrilled are nickel plated. or
I could be wrong totally.
