As a first post, here's a catch I got of the internet this week for a small amount: a '94 Univega Alpina 5.3. I have always loved steel frames with nice geometries so I had been looking for mid 90's Kona and Univega stuff for a while.
Stripped the bike yesterday with the following result:
Small disappointment was to find out that the headtube is only 1". Since the bike came with suspension forks and a-head set, I assumed the headtube was 1 1/8". This means I can't install my Rock Shox Mag 10's. The forks that came on the bike are a pair of Rodem's, apparently pre-Rond.
Bike was finished off with full STX except for the hubs. I have a set of '95 Deore XT derailleurs and am thinking of getting a new set of wheels with 8 speed hubs and cassette.
I'm very much inspired by this thread: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=163090
Maybe I can do something similar with the Tan Tioga Psycho's. Not sure if I should look out for a rigid fork and make a retro fan happy with the Rodem or just keep the forks.
Also, if anyone can help me with the original catalog or components list I would be very happy!
