    My Most Recent Purchase: 1984 Trek 510

    Although I posted in the "What's It Worth" section, I really don't care. I thought I would just share pictures. Regardless of its value, I found a good restore project.

    I may be repeating myself but that is quite a worthy project Bikemanbob.
    The '501 seamed butted tubing is ever so slightly heavier, and it takes a calibrated butt to tell the difference from '531, IMO.

    I am looking at the bar tape and am wondering how to color coordinate with the red and gold accents, unless you find some NOS Benotto translucent gold colored tape. I think I'd end up going with the Newbaums yellow.

    PS - Take care when cleaning all those Trek logos - that sprayed-on lettering was not made to withstand much in the way of chemicals.

    Beautiful bike. Even the reflectors match the bartape and logos . Try to find nailpolish that matches the paint to touch-up the top tube.

    Thanks Auchen and Veloh. Although rough now, it will make a wonderful bike. Your help is appreciated.

    Did the pump come with it? I love it when those old pumps are included, and still work.

    I have a Trek with 501 that I am working on now. It feels as light as 531 to me, but I am a Clyde so weight is not overly important to me.

    Sadly, it did not come with a pump. I did buy a Fuji Special Racer that came with a nice pump. I'll keep it with the bike.

    After Pictures

    Here is how the bike looks after I rehapped it. I decided to keep the original freewheel and chain. I would have liked to wrapped the bars in gold tape, but I went with what I had. It will make a great bike for someone.
