1983 Univega Specialissima

Univega Specialissima = Miyata 1000? Hmmmm. In the words of our friend Josh:

“Some argue that the Specialissima is the exact same bike as the Miyata 1000. Although thanks to the cachet generated from the Sheldon Brown website, which claims the Miyata 1000 being “possibly the finest off-the-shelf touring bike available at the time”, the Miyata now lives in infamy and commands some of the highest prices around for a production bike of that era. That said, some frames, such as the more obscure Univega Specialissima sit in the shadows although they are just as capable a competitor.”

The Simplicity of Vintage Cycles

Meaning “most special” in Italian, the Univega Specialissima was the company’s top grand touring model spanning from the early to late 80’s.
