newly rebuilt '83 viva sport, my second univega:
the brown tape is fizik i think they no longer offer, found on ebay (taipei).
left pretty much as found: suntour gearing (symmetric shifters, blue line in rear, vx in front), sr stuff (crank, stem and bars) and gran compe brakeset. just added consumables, old pedals, a laprade seatpost and sunrace 6.

Wow, that's pretty! Paint looks impeccable. 700c or 27" wheels?
i had it listed on craig's for all of two days. it sold today to a great young man for $380. had it listed for less without the brooks, but after he rode it, he had to have the leather saddle too.
Great to see another one! Yes my frame is huge but I am 6'7" so it certainly works! I have thought also of changing components but the originals work great and are so old school funky and original I kind of thought I should leave it alone. I have every part original from this bike including bill of sale and brochure. Kind of like drive a vintage sports car around in a way, in that it doesn't do anything as well as the new ones but it certainly has a cool factor that's tough to beat.!
Hello All! I put a deposit on a Univega Aluminum 700 over the weekend. My wife and I had been looking for bikes to get back into riding and while she picked a new bike, I saw this on sitting in the shop and just fell in love with it. We pick them up Saturday and I can not wait to ride it! I looked through this thread and don't think I saw another like it. I believe it is a 1996 and the Serial number is GA686786. Any info on it would be great as there dose not seem to be a lot available on the internet.
