Univega Maxima Sport - Serial NK63144

I recently got it for 50 dollars and I was wondering the history behind it and if I got a good deal or not. I believe I got the right serial number. I flipped it upside down and it was on the bottom near the pedals. NK63144. Says Magnalight Triple Butted Tube / Fork. Custom on the bar next to the breaks. Something about SR Sakae on the bars. Shimano. With a customer sticker says *awlee design. It's a weird gold color. Seems pretty small to me.

I have pictures but my phone just died..
I'll show if need be.

Thanks in advance.

Almost certainly a good deal for $50, barring any frame/fork damage or awful rust.

It may just be the angle the photo is taken at but it looks as though it may have been in a front end collision.

If you look at the picture of the whole bike, it's not using the kickstand. I have it hanging against the wall. The handlebars were turned hence the sort of curve. lol... I almost believed you.

Thanks though. Nice observation. Didn't notice it in my picture before I posted.

edit: I went outside and looked. It does look like MAYBE. JUST MAYBE, something is a little curved. Barely barely noticible. I had to use a ruler.
I take that back... you're right!
SORRY !!!!

I don't really care about price that much. I guess I just want to know entry level bike... original listing price, year... you know the easy stuff...
but go on

It is a good under $100 bike.

Now, clean it up, lube all the bearings, and ride it.
