Univega Alpina 501 Shred Sled

I found this one at the supermarket near by. It was standing there for a long time. Locked, rusty and desperate. No one seemed to care as i could see every time I passed by. One day the lock was gone (???), and the bike was laying on the ground. So I decided to rescue this beauty and to take care of it. See what happened here. Magic.
