Greetings from Texas

Hello Everyone,


I found this site a number of times while searching for information on Univega's. I seem to have an attraction to them. Seems I end up here reading stuff, so wanted to join in the fun.
Hope everyone is having a great fall thus far. Almost getting nice in the Fort Worth area now.

What a great forum. Thanks everyone for the welcome. I am now trying to sort out how to post an image of one of my rides.
I am a vintage bike fan but sometimes make some upgrades for my personal use with the thought of potentially returning it to original. I found a Univega CB S8.3 a few months ago, a fairly unusual model I think. I had never seen one before, but it is now my current favorite "hybrid" commuter bike. now to go post an image,.....
