Trek 1000 Need your wisdon, knowledge and patience

Purchased a trek 1000 white with red decals stamped 430054 without any info, rims, rear derailluer and would like to repair to running condition.
1) Approx. year? I've been told the white w/red frame provides a timeframe.
2) Can someone confirm the rims are 700c? Any recommendations keeping prices down? Recreational use only.
3) Can someone recommend a derailluer?

Pls bare with me since I know absolutely nothing about bikes (makes, models, manufactureres etc.). My wife and I picked it up at a police sale and we want to use it to tool around the neighborhood or short trips to the lake(30miles).
Thank you for any information you can provide.
Dave

vintage-trek.com has a model year - color chart.
all the 1000s were 700c, even back to 1985.
derailleur - depends a lot on your other components, particularly the size of the cassette you wish to use.
does this bike have shifters on the downtube? If so, how many clicks does it have? (the right side lever).


And pictures - from the drive side - could help a great deal

The serial number says it's an 1989. Does it look like this? http://velospace.org/node/25331

If so here is the component information http://vintage-trek.com/Trekpromoa.htm#pg16

Ex Pres, Thank you so much for replying to my thread and attempting to assist me. After I posted (which I shld of done before posting-sry) I searched the web and found the same website. I was able to determine the year is 1990 and I downloaded the catalog showing all spec.s and tech info but if I could ask your help in recommending replacement parts it would greatly appreciated. I'm not an avid rider (duh) but the wife and I want to take short trips around the house or to the lake (max 30 miles). The following parts were the original ones but now need replacement:
Rear derailleur - Suntour Blaze Black 7 spd accushift plus indexing
Rims - Matrix Titan II 700c hard anodized
Tires - Matrix CD-2 700 x 25c high pressure skinwall
Tubes - Does it matter?

Also to answer your question - There is 6 clicks but the shift lever specs show 7 spd accushift plus indexing.

1spdbiker, thank you very much for taking the time to assist me. You guys are great!!!
When I researched I found the 89 and 90 and I wasn't sure which year but regardless, it looks like they used the same parts on either year. The pic you sent is right on so I'll go w/the 89 though.
Thanks again guys but if I could ask for recommendations for the replacement parts, it would be greatly appreciated. Not looking for top-of-the-line parts but something reasonable for short trips (maybe 30 miles) but nothing cheap pls.
Thank you

majordave59, assuming you want to use the same shifters, you will need a 7 spd accushift rear derailleur such as this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Suntour-...item3f181eed10.

Seven speed shifters click six times as you don't need to click into the first gear.

Beyond this you will need a 126mm (Rear spaced) 700c wheelset. The hub with the wheel will come with either a cassette freehub or freewheel; either will work. Although 7 speed Suntour accushift is a little different than Shimano the two are pretty much interchangeable, so once you determine which wheelset you are going to buy, then you will need to find the appropriate 7 speed cassette or freewheel. This site explains the difference http://sheldonbrown.com/k7.html

Your shifters likely have a little dial or knob that, when turned, switches between indexed (click shifting) and friction (no click). If you just want to get the bike on the road, any rear derailleur will work, and will work fine with any cassette or freewheel. Te only thing that might be a little tough is finding a rear wheel with 126mm spacing.. might be tough, but I have not looked for one so I don't know.

Go to your LBS and see what they have for wheels, tires, tubes, etc. they have in stock. You can almost certainly get everything you need in one stop.

Keep in mind that a brand new trek 1000 (or whatever they call their entry level road bike now) will probably cost you $800 or less, so don't throw too much money at the cop-auction bike.

I've got a 90 trek 1500 and I can verify that 130mm rear wheels fit fine. There is a lot of discussion regarding this but all the people I've spoken to who have actually tried it seem to agree that 130mm is fine. I'm not sure if indexing on your current shifters would work with the cassettes on the wider wheels but there is always friction mode if you feel like adding another gear or two
