    I like that. A lot. I'm in the process of doing something very similar on my 83 Trek 600. Mine will probably have the Dura Ace bar end shifters, at least that's the way I'm leaning now.

    Thank you.

    I have a Dura Ace bar end shift 8 speed group that I thought hard about putting on it and I think that's a great idea to go with!

I will build up some wheels on some Dura Ace hubs i recently got for the parts collection. I have some fine tuning left like an early Jim Blackburn rack and maybe a B67m because I like very long rides for camping.

    The build can be seen here and all my other work.

    Hi John!

    The bike looks great!

    Now you have some miles on it- what are your thoughts about the Ishiwata frameset? I've heard from people (more like I've read on the internet) that the Ishiwata tubing suffers from one thing- being Japanese. Otherwise it's as good as the English and Italian tubes.

    I love seeing your work and your process- especially on something of yours.

    For whatever it's worth- the Ultegra 6600 style derailleurs from around 2006 have a relatively "classic" styling to them, without the angularity of the newer stuff.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for the kind words!

    I would say the tubing has a great ride, maybe a little heavy but a great ride.

    I am thinking if I come across a Trek 614 frame I might upgrade to that but I am very happy with the 412.

    we got to get out and do some riding together sometime this summer.

    Some more pictures of my '83 620






    Have a little under 300 miles on it since I got it about a month ago. Took off the Blackburn rear rack to carry a few things before I decide on another bag for this one. My saddle bags and the tab on the rack do not play nice. Great riding bike but I think it's going to be about a size too small for me. Not too sure what I'm going to do with it but couldn't resist it when I picked it up given the great condition the frame and paint were in... (That last picture made me realize I lost my cable end...)

    Last night I swung by the LBS to pick something up. When I came in, one of the younger guys complimented my Trek 620- he then asked if that was the bike that I had the cranks replaced on- and I had to explain that I have owned a plethora of blue Treks. I currently have 3, but at one point:

    That's a really nice looking bike! Did you do the build on it, or was it like that when you got it?

    How do you like the Royal Gran Compe brakes?

    1985 trek 660, work in progress. Rethinking my build on this. I am waiting on a longer cinelli stem and a new saddle. I slapped this together with scavenged parts. It rode and shifted a lot better than I expected. Throwing together a mixed matched low budget drivetrain, suntour honor r/d, unknown cheap shimano f/d and sugino triple cranks everything works very nice. If I decide to keep it, I think it will be my beat around rain bike.

    Well, it was pretty complete/original when I picked it up from the original owner. It was sitting in his woodworking shop for 15 years... So the usual consumables had to go. I added one of my Brooks Cambium saddles, a Duluth Pack bag, Paselas, chain, Velo Orange cables (love their look), tape, hoods, everything was went through and repacked/lubed, yada yada.

    I've had no issues with the brakes since going with Kool Stop Cross pads. They've worked as they should.

    Below are a couple pictures as purchased. Have a lot more, but it was about as dingy as you'd expect for being laid up in that environment. Frame and paint are in wonderful shape after I got through all the gunk. Ha.





    And a picture with the Blackburn rack/no bag.

    After 622.8 miles on the Trek 412 in this set up my conclusion is I LOVE IT!
    I changed out the pedals to just basic platform pedals because of a bad foot I have had for ever. The only thing I might change is maybe a taller Nitto stem but I am not rushing to do so, I would like maybe just a half of an inch more height.

    In the fall I am planing a ride from here in Gurnee, Il to my home town in upper Michigan, about 621 miles round trip, I think I will install the taller stem before then and put my Brooks B67 on it for then. I think the Trek 412 will preform quite well on the trip which will have a lot of rough country roads, forest roads, gravel roads and trail.

    I got my 83 600 finished up last night and took it out today. Really liking this one, everything is kind of working together perfectly. It's got an 11-34 9 speed and a 52-39-30 triple. New Deore rear derailleur, new Dura-Ace indexing bar ends.

    otg - did you have to stretch the rear frame for the bigger cassette? I have been thinking about getting a frame for a build and really like the 80's high end Trek frames but slightly worried about having to stretch a frame and screwing it up.

    BTW - REALLY nice color red.

    Thanks, I had to stretch the frame just a small amount, the new wheel fit in no problem. I didn't cold set it, so I could go back to a 126 if I wanted to without any problem. The frame only moves a tiny bit putting the 130 wheel in there, 2 mm on each side, or just a little more than the thickness of a dime.
