Looks decent, I've heard good things about their road bikes. Think they worked with, or were owned by Miyata or something.

Found it on Wikipedia
Univega is a brand of bicycles, created during the bike boom of the 1970s by Ben Lawee (1926–2002),[1] who founded Lawee Inc. to design, specify, and import bicycles initially manufactured in Italy by Italvega, and subsequently in Japan by Miyata.

Some time in the late seventies, production moved from Italy (Italvega) to Japan (Univega). Then to Taiwan in the mid eighties.
The guy who owned it all sounds like he was pretty cool.
