A couple of months ago I was lucky and fortunate enough to find and acquire a 1985 Trek 720.
A few years ago I was also fortunate to meet John Zeni- he bought a beater Continental from me- and we talked bikes for a good long while. Before I met him I had seen his website/blog, and since I've peeked in at his stuff and a few of the cool things he gets to work on. On his home page he says: "My name is John and bicycles are my passion. I live, eat, drink bicycles. I usually can't sleep because I am think about riding or a bike I am working on." He means that.
When his website was brought up here, I thought of asking John to overhaul my Trek 720. He was kind enough to accept- and I'm humbled by the attention he's lavishing on my bike.
John is posting a step by step pictorial of his overhaul of my bike.

Just seeing the bike like this makes me so exited for spring and being able to ride this
Thank you so much John.
