I came across the above 1989 Centurion Dave Scott Ironman Expert when it was advertised in our local "Bargain News". When I went to check it out I saw that the fork was bent back and twisted and the saddle was all torn up. It had run into something but the owner played dumb. I told him it wasn't ride-able and started to walk away. Then he said he would sell it for $40 just to have it moved out of his shed. Since it came with a full Suntour GPX Groupo (Crankset, Bottom Bracket, Hubs, Headset, Derailleurs, Freewheel, Brakes, Brake Levers, Pedals and Downtube Shifters with AccuShift indexed shifting) I figured it could at least be stripped down for parts. I cleaned it up and brought it to my LBS (local bike shop) to ask them if it was worth fixing. They said that besides needing a new fork, headset and saddle - the front brake was also bent. Well I found a cheap carbon fork, and some black Shimano 105 Dual pivot brakes on sale at BikeNashbar.com and then won a Specialized Avatar Body Geometry Saddle on Ebay. The rebuild was on. Once it was fixed up it turned out to be a great ride. By this time I had the bike building bug and I began to built up a 2003 KHS Flite 800 frame. When bike parts keep arriving every other day - the Mrs. started hounding me that I didn't need two race bikes and this new hobby must be getting expensive! I caved in and ended up selling it for what I had invested in it but still regret it today.

Love it. This came with the Suntour GPX group? I always thought Ironman bikes came with 105 or 600

Different versions of this Centurian Ironman came with different component groups. As you have mentioned I've seen all three of them :-)
