Univega Viva Sport year?

From the serial # on the BB this is a frame produced in 1982. Unfortunately I can't locate 1982 or 1983 Univega catalogs for confirmation. It is bone stock except for the saddle, handlebars, stem...

I'm sure they are copies of the MKS. But less expensive. That could mean a bargain or just poorly made.

VP-365 Pedals

+$100 for not having to lay a nice frame on the ground, or lean it against posts and fences. That's probably why the frame doesn't have a scratch on it.

For the record, it seems nobody can ever agree on what makes a bike classic or vintage. Your guess is as good as mine.
