    1983 Restored Trek 640

    24 inches, CTC

    $625 or best offer.
    $75 for packing and ground shipping in U.S.
    Local NYC pickup available.

    This is a gorgeous example of what Trek and others used to call a sport-touring bike. The category doesn't really exist anymore. Medium head- and seat-tube angles. Long enough chain-stays and low enough bottom bracket height to carry a light rear load, and braze-on rack mount. Of interest to Randonneurs, this is one of the last Treks to use a low-trail front end, so it takes a big front handlebar bag quite well.

    The frame is original paint and decals. This means there are a few chips, touch-ups and imperfect decal edges. As someone once said, it looks perfect from about four feet. In any event, it is structurally perfect--aligned, no dents, crashes, rust or other grunge.

    I've spread the rear dropouts to 130mm. There's a new set of Velocity Dyad, 36-hole rims on Shimano Tiagra hubs. The drivetrain is a wide-range 2x9; 12-36 at back, 26-40 in front. Shiimano XD crank, sealed bearing BB, Deore front and rear. Shimano bar-end shifters. Nitto Tallux stem and Noodle bars. Bars are double-wrapped; black rubber, then yellow cloth, then three coats of amber shellac and twine-whipping. Brake levers are vintage Campy. Brakes-- new long-reach Tektros. Tires are 33mm Jack Browns. Seat is a NOS Avocet Touring I.

    Bike will be be professionally boxed and shipped. IMG_4179.jpgIMG_4177.jpgIMG_4174.jpgIMG_4173.jpgIMG_4172.jpgIMG_4171.jpgIMG_4170.jpgIMG_4169.jpgIMG_4168.jpgIMG_4180.jpg
