I bought this last summer to ride until I could get my other bikes from the west coast. It is a beater in that it was rattle canned and the eyelets were drewed off. I didn't notice the loss of the eyelet until I got it home. I have vision problems and maybe some mental awareness ones too!
Now that I have my Colnago here, I am back in heaven. I really don't want to sell the Trek cause it is a nice rider, even though it is not in the best shape. I think there may be some rust under the paint, but until I sand it down, I won't know for sure. I like the bike. It is not as light as my "Nago. but it would be a great all around bike since it has clinchers and the 'Nago has tubulars.
Should I restore the Trek? It needs a replacement RD (little bent, but works) and the brakes were replaced with Dia Compe's. I would go back to 600's.
It has the original Helo-matic hub which works ok, so far. It is geared a little high though. The front hub should have its cones replaced, but other than that it is straight.
