Univega Viva Touring Restoration

I'm not sure how many of you good folks make your way over to the Classic and Vintage forum, so I thought I would share with you my touring bike restoration.

It's a Univega Viva Touring that got the full, resto, custom treatment. Here's some pictures for you to enjoy:

Before:











After:











It was 8 months in the making and I'm very pleased with the results. It will be used with an Acorn Boxy Rando bag on the front for day trips and credit card weekend tours.

More information and the full story are here: Univega Viva Touring - custom build; story and pics

Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Very nice.

What kind of brakes are those?
Are these 700c wheels?

Thanks!

Yes, 700x32 Schwalbe Marathon tires. Brakes are the Grand Cru Cantilevers from Velo-Orange.
