So I got a call from a guy saying he had a couple bikes he was trying to get rid of. Went down there, one was a varsity (bummer) but one was this quite nice nuovo sport (great color pattern univega had I like this one and my pink one quite a bit) well other than the upgrade to shimano 600 cranks it is full exage and "tange chromoly tubing",
really like the stem too.
anyway I got them home and I started to look over the varsity. "odd" I thought to myself as I saw the shimano lark rd, doen't look like any varsity rd I have seen before
keep looking up the frame, stop at the cranks. huh doesn't look like the cranks I am used to seeing on a varsity, and the gt 500 fd is a little odd as well.
anyway not to bore you but then I got to the stem, dang I really like this stem.
so is it an early varsity or did someone strip an early bike and slap the components on a varsity frame?
