Show Us Your Bikes Starting With U

Here's your chance to show us your bikes alphabetically!

It goes like this: every fortnight I'll start a new thread with a new letter in alphabetical order. Post your classic and vintage bikes that correspond to that letter, eg; C = Cinelli, Carlton, Ciocc. M = Mercian, Masi, Motobecane. And so on and so forth. The letter of the fortnight should correspond with the marque, not the model. For example; you could post your Tommasini Prestige in the T thread, but not in the P thread. If you're not sure, take a look at the word on your downtube. There's a grey area with people's names - Bruce Gordon, Claud Butler, etc., but I'll leave it up to the owners which thread is preferred. Make sense?

So let's see your Univegas, Uragos and Unicorns.

does Ugly Betty count as a U or a B?

Union "Rini Wagtmans". Sadly the original decals have been replaced. Allegedly these were built by Gianni Motta, a former racing buddy of Wagtmans.



Union Randonneur. And yes, the seatpost and stem are the original parts.



Heavily modified Union Sapporo:

Univegas!

Definitely the cleanest and probably the prettiest bike I've ever owned, 1986 Univega Sport Tour:







Definitely the ugliest bike I've ever owned, 1976(?) Viva Sport wrong-side-drive fixie, with main tubes adorned with faded a peeling woodgrain shelf paper; saddle made mostly of black duct tape. (As found)
