    Beautiful bike. I just sold one, a 57 or 58 cm, sans wheels that was a touch too small. $400 may be the far side of value. Good luck.

    I am glad you posted this. I have a Trek 612 frame to build, and was thinking of going modern 8 speed with brifters.
    The frame is a beautiful 531 tubing. It sounds like you enjoy your 613.

    I have to say, I love my Super Le Tour 12.2.
    If it fits, I would buy it.

    I make sure there are no dents or bends in the frame and the components work as they should - although I replaced the...

    I purchased my Trek 720, with the matching Blackburn racks, for $300.

    I look at some of the Suntour derailleurs, how well they are made, and lament more their passing. Very sad.

    Wow! I just bought a (front and) rear Suntour Vx GT derailleur. What a solid piece of machinery. I am going to install sealed bearing pulleys and mount it (them) on my Trek 520. Cannot wait.

    I try to look at the high end steel bikes of the various manufacturers.
    Then I look for the variety of eras. Each era has its own charm. Friction vs. Index shifting, etc.

    The SVX was a late '80's offering, 1988 maybe? Thanks for the reminder of the Vx GT. That may be the ticket!
