I have a 1984 Univega Gran Turismo that needs a bit of work (cleaning, brakes and cables, new wheel, saddle, pedals are too small). I found a 1979 Panasonic Deluxe Sport on craigslist for 100 bucks.
I was thinking of buying it, and using it for parts for my Univega, but it's listed as ready to ride.
Would it be better to ditch the Univega for the Panasonic? Would the Univega be better for touring? The Panasonic has a 24" frame, I currently ride a 19" frame. The Univega is about the same size as what I ride now. Does size matter?
