Thanks, everyone. I'll make the adjustments and re-try. I'll try dating it, too.
I hope T-Mar spots this thread as I'd like to know the manufacturer. My understanding is that Univega was a rebadge brand for a couple of Japanese makers.
Here I go hijacking my own thread:
[hijack] Spry, I have a Detel Legend2000, too. From what I was able to find out, they were in business in Green Bay for about 7 months before they went out of business. So they're rare, but not necessarily nice (at least my impression of the components on the Legend2000 I came across was that it was low-end).
Mine had bolt-on steel wheels, a 27" in back and a 26" in front. Crazy bend to the front fork. Low-end crank and chainrings (riveted together). Weinmann suicide levers. But the calipers were good, black, Weinmanns. Does yours have the crazy-extended front fork? Did it have a 26" front wheel?
I stripped it for the Ishiwata frame for a single-speed project.
I broke off the braze-ons, bomb-canned it, and put on a "normal" fork from an old Schwinn World Sport. I put on aluminum wheels (solid rear axle), and I just need a crank. I didn't think anyone else had even heard of Detel. I can post pics if you want. [/hijack]
Thanks again, everyone.
