From Sheldon Brown: “The Centurion Pro Tour appeared in the late 1970s and survived into the mid-1980s. It is a gem, perhaps the nicest mass-produced touring bike ever. It can be seen as the touring version of the Semi-Pro but with a slightly stronger Champion #2 frameset and the touring versions of the Semi-Pro’s nice mix of Sugino and Suntour components. It weighed in at 26lbs, not bad for a touring bike of its day.”
