    Hi Capridrifter, I get the feeling you're into BMX . That's quite a selection...

    The Univega, any idea what year?

    There's a thread down in Forum Suggestions (waaaay down at the bottom of the home page) just for practicing posting photos. Are you sure the Univega is aluminium, and not steel? As for replacing parts, there's a thread in C & V for 'in search of' (the iso/wtb thread) stickied close to the top of the page in C & V, so you might ask there.

    Alex triple wall rims and spokes to make them fit my Mosh hubs
    Fishbone Gyro
    Diacomp 990 front brakes
    Dia comp brake levers I think...(been a long time)
    My seat post from my univega and crossbow saddle
    two or three sets of tires one set for every accasion...and spares
    Sigh...now I'm working on my new Dj2. which is the blue one pictured above

    My NEW mosh DJ2.....parts list is....So far...
    Mosh Dj2 frame(blue) and forks (black)
    Mosh front and rear hubs
    Alex double wall rims
    Odyssey tires
    Mosh forks
    Mosh stem
    HARO handle bars

    That Univega has Cyclocross written all over it. Build it up and come out for some racing next year. Two of Portland's best races are in your backyard! Barton Park, and Estacada Timber Park. There's some old school BMX'rs out there for sure...technical skills are a big plus. Welcome to BF.

    Nice selection of bikes there, Capri! A bit of cleanup on a couple of them would make them into some awesome machines (especially the Univega).

    Just don't drift away as so many people do--much to their regret twenty years down the line when they realise how much fun they were missing. Besides, it's a great way to enjoy family life .

    Back again I think I want to clean up and sell the UniVega...That thing is just too big for me...lol I want to try and scrape up enough money to get a Disk brake conversion for my Beloved Mosh. I saw a few on Ebay recently for around $110-120$ range just for frame and forks and that was ones that weren't cleaned up good
