How much did this bike sell for?

Trek 720 Multi Track, 1998 Model. I can't find what SRP was when new.

It looks much older than 1998 (judging by the style of the decals). Got any better photos of it?

No. I don't have any other pics. I also can't find any 720 hybrids BEFORE 98. Those after were not red, so I am assuming it was a 98 model.

Check out vintage-trek.com

Looking at the graphics and the color, I'd guess it's a 1990 model.

The horizontal top tube, canti brakes and threaded non suspension corrected fork are also out of place on a 1998 bike. The wheels also look like 26" with slicks not 700c so it could originally have been sold as an mtb.

Check the specs in the last pages of this 1990 Trek catalog:

http://www.vintage-trek.com/images/t...rek/90Trek.pdf

Bright red paint with white decals/purple accents, Suntour XCT components.... I think we have a winner.

I'd guess suggested retail was about $299

What's it worth today?

I'd put its value at $125 max. Less if the drivetrain shows wear and will need replacement soon. The Suntour stuff is very difficult to find today, but often there are suitable replacements floating around.
