    Vintage Univega road bike Frameset + extras Great fixie project

    "58cm Univega road bike.
    Comes with 700c wheels and all extras shown.

    Stuck seat post.
    "


    Stuck seat post? looks like someone broke off a tap in the poor old 'vega, how did the rider not realize at some point that the post wasn't fitting?? take notes gents, if you have to hammer it in... don't. might be able to bend the clamp back into shape but would you ever trust the brazing on those seat stays after so much flexing? at $30 I'm half tempted to find out

    Rust free Southern sheetmetal, same body as a 1970 Torino GT. At today's body shop rates for someone restoring a rusted out or wrecked Torino GT that $2500 would be a bargain.

    Wrong, completely different roofline. The car in the ad is the grandma and grandpa grocery getter body. Look at the rear quarter windows.

    You’re opening a whole other can of wacky worms if you’re going to include old car sellers.

    guy named ralf (yeah, spelled that way) sends me an email asking about my suntour rd without a hanger bolt, and when i say, "sure, let's meet at green wood park," he responds, "where do you live? i'd like to see your other stuff." when i tell him i like to meet in a public location convenient to us both, he sends this last ultra creepy bit of correspondence:

    "what are you afraid of?
    selling stolen parts?

    True, different quarter windows but the overall roofline and from the top of the doors and quarter panels down is the same, body lines are all the same, same wheelbase and putting the Torino roof or even just the quarter window section on the Fairlane lower body would still be WAY cheaper than trying to piece in a rotted floor and 1/4's. IF you could even find replacement panels. I'm standing by $2500 not being out of line at all to the right guy. Friend of mine builds rods, customs and does restoration work. He's done a few upper body swaps like that where the customers bought rust free 4 doors and had their 2 door roof and upper body grafted onto the 4 door floor and trunk pans. They paid that much or more for 4 doors, in 1 case it was the guy's first car he had tracked down 30 years later and he had the money to do whatever it took to restore THAT car even though buying a better one would have been cheaper. New sheet metal simply was not available and using the 4 door donor car saved him several thousand dollars in labor. '67 Plymouth Belvedere with the body and interior restored to original but upgraded with a new 5.7 Hemi and a 6 speed instead of the old 318 2 bbl. and automatic it came with. The 4 door they used was a near perfect Arizona car with 75,000 miles, almost a shame to cut it up but it was worth more as parts than as a whole car.

    The ad was horrible. Anyone looking at the ad has no idea what they are selling other than it is a Fuji with a Sora RD and is presumably a CX bike.

    The roof from the top of the rear window to the rear tail light panel down to the middle of the body is different. This difference starts at the back edge of the side window. The fairllane/base torino has a dip in it, where it is pretty much a straight line on the fastback/GT. Let me find some side view pictures when I get home this evening.,,,,BD

    Below the midline, I agree it is the same. Wheelbase is the same too.

    I meet at the local supermarket. Well lit lot, lots of traffic, easy to find. There's an ATM on sight, nobody has to carry cash- and we're on camera if need be. Gives folks confidence.
