does anyone know how much such a frame weighs(80's frame)?
got any background details about these bikes (centurion le mans + suntour parts)?

I don't remember the weight, but it was competitive for the time--probably heavier than some modern bikes, but certainly a decent, rideable bike. If you have one that fits, it would be fine for everyday riding, touring or building up into a singlespeed or fixie.

I was thinking if it is worth buying an old bike and mounting some newer parts on the frame. I was wondering if it would be wise to give up my cheap alu frame (2.1 kg) for the old centurion one. The centurion bike isn't functional so i can't use it as it is.(hubs sprockets etc are very worn out)
