I'm a twin too so this makes it an even better story.
Really great work on sourcing everything and putting together such a great looking bike.

It really looks fantastic and I bet you're brother couldn't believe it when he discovered what you had recreated.

Well done!

Love the bike and process! I was in the same situation this past year except I built 3 of the bikes I wanted! Good luck with the bike and future builds!

Thanks Everyone for the positive comments and feedback!

My Bro loves it..a bit too much. He is scared to ride it off road for fear of getting the tires dirty!

His girlfriend sure is pleased with the new decor!

Great story and an even better present, I wish someone would do that for my next birthday.

You have done a fantastic job restoring that Univega, they are one of the most underated bikes out there imho.
