    I have been thinking of getting a Trek ever since the early 80's when a friends bike shop started selling them. However I was stuck on Japanese bikes then because of the quality of Japanese cars and I just figured it transferred to bikes as well. It was not until recently that I have come to appreciate the quality of an American made Trek.

    So I picked up this Trek 560 to fix up, and purple was my first road bike color so it called my name. Picture is of it in the as found condition.

    Doesn't lotek have a 170, or am I misremembering? I think Dannihilator also might have an early 9xx.

    no, I have a 770 see pic below of partial repaint. I'd love a 170 but there weren't too many of them
    built. Skip Eckert at vintage trek has 203 listed in his serial number database. I've seen estimates up
    to about 250 made.
    maybe John from Trek will chime in on this.

    and here's my Trek. (more photo's to come).

    1981 Trek 613

    Currently in the garage while I add SKS "longboard" fenders, KoolStop brake pads and a blackburn rear rack. I'll add updated pics in a few days.

    This is beautiful! Love all the details. What did you use to cover the ends of the brake bolts? Also, what Koolstop pads are you going to use? I have the same brakes or close enough, NGC-500, on my 715 and haven't figured out which are the right ones.

    So jealous, I want one. To post bigger picture, you need upload your pictures to a photo hosting service like photobucket.com or flickr.com, then link the picture to the forum.

    Thanks so much! Amazingly, the brake bolt caps are original to the brakes, they have a little "DC" emblem on them. They were originally on my first road bike, a 1981 Trek 614...same bike, but a few component differences from the 613. The KoolStop pads are the "continental" variety. I got them on the Harris Cyclery website. I've installed them on the rear calipers so far, and they are a perfect fit, I did not even need to adjust the cable. You will need to re-use the black finger tabs on the brakes as a spacer though. I do recommend you sand the pads down a bit to remove the shiny finish and avoid squeaks when braking. I'll post a close up pic later for clarification as well.

    And thanks BD for the kind words.

    there are some amazing examples in this thread, I hope it stays alive for a while
