    Here is mine all cleaned up. It was built December 12 1981 and purchased by me in May 1982. I have all the original parts and paperwork including brochure. I would love to find a 80mm Nitto stem for it though of this vintage. Great riding bike.

    ^ awesome.

    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?

    So many beautiful Univega's! I saw mine listed on CL for $25. Chain was rusted stiff, no tires on the wheels, bar tape in shreds. I paid $20 for it.

    thanks. yeah, the paint on these is often perfect. and they're 27" wheels. they weren't in the best shape, so i polished the sidewalls wih a fine paper, sprayed the nipples with a light oil, de-tensioned them, retentioned them, and they trued up perfectly.

    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.

    that is going to be beautiful. love the s600 crank. and it looks like a black saddle and white tape will fit it well, but there are probably several options you're considering. hope you post the end result here.

    Just Gorgeous

    They are great riding and handling bikes. Even the mid range models. That one's my size too.

    And welcome !

    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.!
