1981 Trek 613
I bought this bicycle from a guy who had it sand blasted and powder coated maroon. He knew that it was Reynolds 531 double butted and that it was a Trek 613. I decided that for a $150 a freshly powder coated vintage trek of any type was worth it so I bought it. I asked him what the original color had been and he had said a kind of goldish color. using this information, a few google image searches, and vintage trek.com, I determined that the 613 was only made 2 years. 1981 and 82; I have the earlier. I compared the catalog on vintagetrek and it looks like I have all the original components save perhaps the chain, tape, tires, cables, and housing. If you look at the scanned in 1981 catalog on vintage-trek it has hand written numbers next to a few of the models, a couple of them have a pair of smaller underscored zeros next to them, implying prices. The 613 has a price of "389" next to it in the catalog.
If I felt like it I could have the decals reconstructed exactly as they were.
So vintage trek experts, what is it worth?
