The 1985 Trek 400 was light blue with white decals, and the 1989 Trek 400 was available in Denim Blue with yellow trim.


Can you post pics, divulge the serial number, list component trim, or offer some combination of the three?

Why do some people on the Vintage forum have to brag about thier dates? "Dating a Trek", "dating a Motobecane". We don't care who you are dating, this form is about classic bicycles! If you want to talk about dating, go to Yahoo! Personals.

Little harsh? Get a vintage bike and you want to get information about it including the date.

But the REAL question is...."do you want to know who else your trek has dated?"
