Yeah it's nice. But between that seatpost and the seller feeling like they need to explain why they're selling it, I suspect the seller hasn't ridden it before. Inspect carefully.

Fork's bent, and the less said about the seat post and seat tube at the back, the better.

Depending on limb/torso length, budget, and TT length, I've seen and used creative solutions like this in the past to fit a bike I really, really wanted to ride but the current setup wasn't suitable. Flipping your post or bracket is an easy way to reposition forward w/o the need to buy a new/different seat.

Not saying that's what the seller was thinking in this case, but ... I got a couple of PM's a while back after posting a pic of a bike I'd just finished refurbing to tell me, "hey, seat clamp is backwards" when it was intentional, so I feel an overwhelming desire to stick up for this person

Oh my. If that's real, to call it a "screaming deal" would be an understatement.

I'd bet money that the bike will resurface on Craigslist in the near-future for a number north of the original asking price.

I don't know where this sits in the Univega pecking order, but it seems fairly nice, and appears to be sporting its original SunTour Cyclone parts. It's my size, but I need another bike like I need another hole in my head... Happy to check it out if someone is interested.

Univega Gran Premio vintage road bike nice!!! just tuned!!

I believe that's a German Pinarello. Pinarello cloning has come a long way since then.

I know there's some Centurion fans around here. This is going on its second list run in ATL for $300, looks like it's in minty condition, very close to a couple of us BF'ers intown, not currently on my list of coveted brands/models. Tons of pics in the ad. I can facilitate if someone is jonesing.

Dunno anything about it but I would say that it is about the right price, the bike appears to be unridden. One quick search indicates that the owner of this bike was told that Rick Faultusack was the guy certified by Reynolds to build with 753 tubes:
