1981 Univega Land Rover 26

Street beater found rusting in the wild.  Kickstand bracket was removed, frame and fork stripped, sanded, auto primed and spray bombed matt black.    I had a lot of fun with this budget build.  Finally I switched out the Shotgun Univega seat and DX pedals for Troxel/rubber block combo for more of a bobber vibe.  Everything is a work in progress, ride it tweak it, ride it tweak it etc... Thanks for looking!

Style for miles bro! Such a laidback style you could fall asleep riding that thing.
I really like how it seems to be almost like architecture. Lines, smooth colour transitions.
