Jim Cunningham just linked Cyclart's lightweight site earlier today and I found a Centurion on it at the edge of our time line. It was quoted as "This is the one blessed by Cinelli! Cinelli logos on the fork and seatstay caps and frame quality beyond anything expected from Centurian."

I've got one of these that I purchased off a CR list member, quite a good deal, but I believed I was buying a Cinelli model Centurion. Mine had all the decals scraped off with the exception of a Cinelli logo, a made in Italy decal and the engraved Cinelli Seat stay and fork caps. Not being a very knowledgeable Cinelli afficionado, would someone know and fill me in on the history of this bicycle, its dates of manufacture and who actually constructed the frames. I'd sure appreciate learning a little more about it.
