I've been searching Craigslist for the last couple of weeks looking for a bike for my wife. I was wanting a mixte or an interesting 3 speed. My wife could care less, she just wants something pretty. I found her a frame but it's not real pretty, at least not yet. It's a Univega Sportour mixte circa 1981 or 82. It's got some really interesting Shimano 600 EX or "arabesque" downtube shifters, and derailers. It also came equipped with SR crankset and Dia-compe brakes. The frame itself is much lighter and higher quality than I had expected.
