No, not my weight. Thankfully. That would be Project 325. To get project 325 going, I got a Trek 420 earlier today. Hence the moniker.
It's a yellow '89 420, all original components, needs some cleaning up tho. The Vetta gel saddle cover (Lycra?) is coming unglued. Specifically what kind of glue would work here?
I'm thinking of retiring some of the components and keeping them to restore to original should I ever sell. The frame just needs a good cleaning. Chain rings, cassette and chain....eh I don't know.
Definitely need to replace the bar tape. Maybe remove the rear rack, but it'll be OK there for now.
I hear Avocet saddles of the same period are pretty comfortable, are they still available NOS or otherwise? What about the groupset - would some of you folks suggest I get a Shimano 600 or RX100 groupset? How much would I probably be looking at on ebay?
General stuff like that. I think I'll set a budget of $200 (not all at once but total investment). So in a nutshell, what would you fellow Clydes suggest within that $200 limit?
And, of course, the wheels. Always the wheels...
