    Look What Followed Me Home **vintage warning**

    I've had my eye on this bike for over two years....


    Campy
    531c (full) Pro Series frame
    Modolo
    Superbe
    Full dealership custom build in the tradition of oldschool Trek. The frame appears to be '85 but the lettering, paint and "c" Pro Series frame could be '86. This will be my "guest bike" and for going around town. Frame is a 19 and I take a 21 but I wont mind a bit.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    I don't care what the metallurgists say, there has never been a better frame material than Reynolds 531.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Always loved old Treks. Built one for a former love, in 1976. 531 is wonderful stuff!

    Nice pick up. I've been hoping a Trek of that vintage (or in that general time frame) would show up on my radar. It is a class ride.

    Thanx, guys. Cant wait to spiff it up. Tires are new, still have the mold strip down the middle. Bar tape and cables like new....just clean and tune. I'm still mildly stunned it is sitting in my playroom.

    Very very nice Trek.

    Hope it isn't too small for you. might hafta get a Nitto Technomic stem and MTB or Kalloy extra tall seatpost for it to get the fit you want.
