Is it worth saving the frame? It's all there, just badly treated.

Ok that was too easy. Univega. Can't remember which one but under about three layers of paint now. Pesky kids. Was given it back in the mid 90s hence stem as its way too small for me.

Any idea how old it is? Probably going to scrap it as everything pretty worn.

No don't scrap it, there's quite a lot of love for Univagas on here.

If you're coming to the FoD national ride next month you could always bring it along and offer it as Karma.

Here you go viewtopic.php?f=45&t=271497 although the actual ride thread hasn't gone up yet.

I'm not interested in the frame myself (it's too big for me) but I think it's a shame to bin it without offering it up.

Pretty sure it s a 1995 Univega Alpina 501, very basic parts but a nice frame so well worth giving to someone that wants to repaint it.

I can make out three layers on top of original goldy colour. :facepalm:

So it's worth a play then? Might keep it hidden from the boss :mrgreen:
