1983 Univega Cruiser 500 24

Univega 5 speed cruiser

Found this on Craiglist and paid an extra $10 just to have the guy hold it for me for two weeks. It looked to cool to let it get away. I am unsure of the frame- guessing it's chromoly. Neck and seat clamp look like SR copies (stem stamped "HL"- if anyone knows who that is I would appreciate the info). Has a fluted seat seat post, Dominator seat, unknown bars (but they look cool- big, wide, BMX style cruise bars; got to love them!!). Since the cable guides are brazed on I have to assume this model was always a 5 speed only.

What is the hub/rim combo? Those look sharp.

Re: 1983 Univega Cruiser 500 24

I just picked one up at a swap meet for $50 and only thing that was not origenal was the rear wheel.. I haven't seen to many of these cruisers around but the main reason I bought the cruiser was the Kool cruiser bars and for the origenal dia-comp brakes.. I think I'm going to do this one up BMX style.. I would like to see if anyone else have one..
