|Other details: Offered is this nice example of the Univega 500 all terrain rigid bicycle, designed in USA and built in Taiwan this was a good quality bike back in the day and can be used around town and on the trails (on & off road), it is in great condition showing very few signs of use and age and has been mostly dry stored, so a good to go everyday bicycle with some better quality parts than most mid range bikes on the market at present, so great value for money.
It has fitted removable mudguards and a rear rack, that can be removed if not required, but useful left on.
The Racelight 4130-DB Cromoly double butted frame tubes and chainstays are made with the Bio-Axial technology that basically means the tube joins are of an oval shape at the end of a round tube, and are of double thick tube construction at the joins for extra strength, this helps to keep the weight down, and the Cromoly is a stronger grade of steel that they used in old school bmx racing frame builds for extra strength, so signs of a better quality bike (for those who need the extra info)
This sold at Bedford auction for £70.00.
