    1908s Trek 400, 4130 Cromo

    Hi,
    This fell into my lap. I'm wondering whether it's worth flipping and what it could fetch. Thanks in advance....

    That should read 1980s Trek. This is obviously not from 1908.

    If you go the ebay route, probably $75 to $125. It's a ready-made, for the fixed crowd. Inclusion of HS and BB are a plus. Condition looks decent.

    Size might work against it. 700C or 27"? Lugged Treks will always have a market.

    Thats a 1989 trek 400. It should take 700 wheels and would make an excellent project bike.

    When the earth is covered with 2/3's beer, then I'll buy bottled water!

    I would be all over that frame if it wasn't so freaking tall.

    Nice frame!
