I got this bike from a yard sale a few weeks ago and I can't find another one like it on google or here.. Anyone know what it is? Obviously it's a Centurion Le Mans Mixte... but why does it look weird? It's got a metal C badge on teh front, but the logo is different than the other Centurions that I've seen... the ION isn't bold.

Anyhow, here's the pics.

Ummm...I think you answered your own question. It is an old 80's era Centurion LeMans Mixte frame bike. It looks weird because it is a mixte (ladies) style frame. It was a pretty basic, inexpensive bike shop quality bike. ( I sold lots of them when I worked at a Centurion dealer in the 80's.) The logo is different because it is an older type of headbadge from the 80's.

I had one of these, it was the first bike I bought as a new shop rat back then. I had a mens model in tan. Within a year, I upgraded to the Dave Scott Ironman model, which I had for years. I have since moved onto a custom built Klein (per-Trek) and am looking to build up a Scott carbon CR1 next.

The bike is nothing special. I assume you wanted a basic, knock around bike for the neighborhood. This bike is fine for that. Clean it up a bit, lube it up, and go for a spin. If you get serious about riding, you will upgrade (circa something from this century) in no time.
