out there (we aren't legion, but we're fanatical) check out this gorgeous Grand SPort on eBay (no, I'm not selling it, but I may bid on it if the price stays way low & I drink too much beer tonight.)

I actually tracked it down before you posted the link. I agree, very pretty bike. Definitely the best looking Univega I've seen and one of the better preserved 1980s roadies on eBay in awhile. (At least in the "real world" that Masi up above is on a different level)

had a Univega Sportour (a half-step step down on the food chain from this one) of the same vintage and size. In a lifetime of bikes, cheap to pricey, it was my favorite.
