To Build or Not to Build?
So I've been thinking, would it be better to pimp out a 1981 Univega Viva Sport frame or build a new bike entirely?
I don't know what kind of frame to buy. I'm looking for things on the cheap, but not something that completely sucks. I'm looking to spend around $300-$500 on the Univega (leaving the fork, frame, handlebars, seat, tires) and about $500-$700 if I build a new bike based on a new frame.
The new bike would be some sort of multispeed bike. I might want to go fixed later, but not right off.
