>>I will include derailleurs free of charge if you do not want to build it as a single speed. <<

Is that like a bribe not to make a fixie?

Vintage-Trek.com is a great resource for information on older Treks.

Decals make it look like a 1984. The 560 was built with Reynolds 501. Here's a link to the 1984 catalogue. Frame geometry is at the bottom of the page.
