I've had my wife's Univega Sportour mixte frame hanging in the garage for over a year now. I was going to have the frame powder coated but I've been able to clean the finish to the point that it looks acceptable. I really want to have this bike finished before the weather starts warming up.
I picked up a cartridge bottom bracket yesterday and installed it along with a few other parts. I'm still lacking a riser stem, upright bars, a good saddle, pedals, and assorted small items.
