1989 Univega Alpina Pro, 17" seat tube (C-T), 21" top tube (C-C), 16.5" chainstay. This was the top of the line for Univega in 1989, and features Tange Presige tubing, stunning weld quality, and a very cool 'black chrome' finish. Frame has seen precious little use (not one mark from the chain), but t are blemishes w the clearcoat disintegrated and caused discoloration in the chrome and some very minor surface rust under the seat cluster and around the BB (see pics). I removed it to bring back the shiny chrome, but did not want to remove the decals (they were in the clearcoat) so t is some dullness t as well. I think you could polish the clearcoat and have it match the brightness of the chrome, but I'm not an expert and didn't want to attempt it. Some areas are still quite magnificent. Please check out the detailed pics, they show all of this very well. Please note the welds, freakin' awesome! I included a pic on the inside of the BB, t is no internal rust whatsoever t or inside the head tube.
