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.
1985 660 9 speed w/bar end shifters.
Where are the 170 and 970?
Sweet sweet thread. Makes me want a trek
This one is for sale near me. If it fit me and was half the price i would jump on it!

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).
1982 Ciocc World 77
1981 Nishiki Cresta
1982 Trek 613
1987 Giant Yukon
there's some bikes in here I can actually like
building bikes = riding bikes
Never had a Trek the color of that 613. When I do it will never leave my hands. NICE job! What a sharp looking bike!!.,,,,BD
