    look thru the catalogs at http://www.vintage-trek.com/
    with that headbadge it's from 1983 or earlier, can't see if it's screwed or glued, but looks glued. Given the VGT RD and the cheap calipers, it's not a top model, but can't be bad either. I have no idea what he means by "Gyro" hubs, that's a new one.

    not that it matters now but "glued and screwed" [early eighties trek with lugged steel frame]? what was glued?

    it was great looking bike but I thought a bit over priced

    all of the early trek steel bikes were silver-soldered. Nothing's glued and screwed on any Trek...their aluminum and early carbon bikes were glued, but not screwed.

    The Sunshine (Sanshin) "Gyromaster" sealed bearing hub was used on some Trek models in the mid 80s.
