Fender1, would Botox help?



This is a rare "before" botox piture.
Or maybe this Trek is a meth head?

A little "rehab" and you won't recognize this frame by next week!

I have to say I LOVE vintage Trek's. I will not be able to get a vintage head badge with out much searching and since I will be running a mix of new and old componetry, a historicaly correct restoration did not make sense. Hence the "personal expession" Dr.D is working into the head tube. Also the bike is a designated commuter, will be used daily and in any weather, no "trailer queens" in my stable. If 3 bikes makes a stable.

Anyway if I choose to do the correct restoration thingy, I would use the Paramount I just picked up not a whipped TREK I got for $26.

Man, if you show us that cool chopper one more time, we will demand that you build an up-to-date remake....

Heck NO! That is a hand crafted sissy bar. And if it was a Chrysler hood ornament, it's upside down!
