is an old Centurion Turbo '84. The paint was scratched up so I stripped
the paint off down to what I think is chrome. Came out ok, except

Nitto Technomic Deluxe 10cm
Ultegra 8 speed bar end shifters
Ultegra rear derailleur long cage
Suntour Superbe front derailleur

had to change the axle on the rear because the spacing is only 126mm.
