Hi folks -
I have an old '84 Trek 620. I think I'm the second owner - bought it in '92 I think. Upgraded to bar-end shifters; had to replace the rear derailleur about 8 years ago. Haven't ridden in four or five years; got on it today and the helicomatic rear hub decided to freewheel on me.
The frame is in fair shape, some paint chips and a bit of rust at some of the braze-ons. Bars and seat post are scarred but in good shape. Decals are old and cracking, but the bike rides really well (except for the rear hub now, of course). I also replaced the front wheel after I got hit and potato-chipped it about 5 years ago.
Is it worth trying to keep this thing in relatively original shape, or should I just upgrade with new stuff as needed? It's been a great bike and I like it, just trying to decide on a path forward.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
