MY UNIVEGA PATHFINDER - FINISHED

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m130/ratrodbikes/IMG_1420.jpg


Normally I wouldn't give a Univega a second thought, but I had this 70s model bike sitting around and liked the 2nd gusset so I decided to make a project out of it.

I decided to paint the bike myself and ended up using some Valspar Paint/Primer combo from Lowes for the frame. Surprisingly the paint went on very smooth and the finish is pretty impressive for a spray bomb. This was a low stress, low budget build so it was fun to play around with it.

I had the Preston Petty grips already so I decided to use them as the basis for the color scheme. All other parts used were ones I already had including the Motomags and tires. Just missing the coaster brake hanger and maybe some custom decals and she'll be done.
