Could have been that Centurion (WSI) bought fully 2/3 of Araya's production that year of CTL-370 rims.

And I've noticed that many of their bikes from that era got repainted, which used to make me suspicious as a buyer, but made sense from the point of view of how quickly that Centurion's fruity colors faded and/or soiled, and how dated that their color schemes (neons, lavender, etc.) quickly became,

It would be decades later that Centurion's bikes ever even found their way onto my radar, and only after buying a repainted (white) one to use for my frame-sizing experiments back in the later 90's.
