ricohman posted about a 1988 Trek 520 and I couldn't believe the prices that were mentioned for older Trek bikes.
I have a 1996 Trek Fast Track 470 with a complete RSX group including 7 speed brifters, dual pivot brakes and RSX hubs. It even has the original Rigida SHP 60 rims. The frame is in very nice shape, though not in the condition of ricohman's. I checked with BikePedia and everything on the bike is original.
How do you distinguish between a Trek that is worth a few bucks and a Trek that isn't?
I took off the RSX derailleurs and replaced them with 105's that I had lying around thinking it would be better for resale. Is this a good thing, or should I leave the RSX group alone?
Here are pics of mine.
