1976 R&R Centurion

I think this is a 76 R&R but not sure there is no brake bridge if you could help me out thanks.

Nice frame Jay and a great score. That looks maybe like a R&R Superlight frame.

A picture of me racing my old R&R. Sorry, but for a taller guy (I was like 5 10) the bike sucked the big lewboski.
I bought it used and loved how it looked. But it rode as crappy as a Patterson.

Re: 1976 R&R Centurion

That's not a Superlight. The superlight is light chromo with a square tube of chromo holding the seatpost, not a plate like ours. These were made of mild steel and weight a bit more.

Here's mine built as it was the day it was stolen after 8th grade:

If I can find it I'll post a PDF of the review from the first BMXA magazine.
