I just joined last week. Think I'll watch this thread to keep in touch with your stories. Very encouraging!
Yea, everthing locks. The rack and the mounts.
I have seen fork mounts attached to a cross bed tool box. Pretty slick.
I have this rack and it works fine.

I don't recall having a white film. Soaking with baking soda then spraying it down with clear water worked for me. I have a compressor so I blew out the tubes with air then sprayed frame saver inside.
Just soak it until the rust is gone. You can't put a time on it because the strength of the solution can vary. Mine took about a day to get completely rust free. I read that baking soda was good so...
That is the paint that Trek used. BTW, I have treated a rusty frame with oxalic acid with good results. I then had the whole frame repainted since I wasn't confident that I could match the color.
Can you possibly match Imron paint with something else? Another option would be to strip the componants and take the frame to a powdercoat shop.
There must be more to this story. My frame soaked for a day and a half and only took off the rust.
Just look at what you are soaking. I used wood bleach strength and added water. I checked the frame from time to time until I was satisfied the rust was gone. It's relatively mild, so you don't have...
I don't recall you ever fixing up a Paramount. Be cool to see what you would do with that.
I have these and the Silver shifters. They are the same except for the design of the levers. Both very nice.
Beautiful! Well done!
I had this Lemond up until a few months ago. Dura Ace components and a nice rider. I was riding my old Trek more and more so I finally sold it.
Wow, what a find!! I'm coming over to look at it! :)
The Cardinal Greenway outside of Muncie Indiana.
The dogs will keep you on your toes! I can't ride in the backroads without being chased.
My favorite Trek of all! Great story and perfect restoration. Well done!
I want an early Trek all terrain bike! Let the hunt begin! :)
My favorite bars! I like the 46 cm wide version. I'm 6'3".
That bike is cool. :thumb:
Well done! It turned out great! :thumb:
I just upgraded a 1986 Trek and installed wider handlebars. I found them much more comfortable than the stock bars.
Damn, that's a great deal for $75 bucks!
I've been eyeing those for awhile. Thanks for the review!
