Vintage Univega

I pulled into the Radio Shack parking lot at the Montgomery Plaza yesterday morning when I ran across this old steel framed Univega mountain bike secured to a light post. Judging from the skyward facing bar ends, gel seat pad and frame mounted floor pump, it probably belongs to one of the construction workers in the building. The bike looks like it's from the late 80's. It has that speckled paint job that was so popular back then. It has Onza bar ends, thumb shifters, XT rear derailleur, LX front derailleur, Suntour cranks and a really long Zoom stem. It has some really cool after market cantilever brakes on back. It's also equipped with a really nice Bontrager fork with V brakes (a later addition I suppose). You don't see too many of these old mountain bikes around.
