I have a chance to buy a mint....and I mean MINT 1983 Trek 520 (the first year they were made) but the guy wants over $600 for it. I think they were approximately $400 back in 1983, and I think he has had it recently tuned up due to it sitting in a garage for so long. Is this price outrageous for an early Trek? It appears to be a size that would work for me.
Also.....another guy has a 1980 Trek 510 in mint condition that he wants $900 for. WOW! That seems REALLY high for a 510 Trek. I was going to lean more toward the 520 but thinking it still is high for the price.
What would a mint condition 520 be worth? Is it a good bike to buy and upgrade/live with? I've heard some good things about Trek in the early years, but haven't gotten as much info as I would like. Thank you for any input.
