    I wouldn't pay a bike shop to do a conversion (for me). ;)

    I did the conversion (posted above) on a tight budget. I already had the bike. But I paid to have it powder coated. Everything cost me...

    Thanks. I had it powder coated. Most parts are new. Only thing stock are the QR skewers on the seatpost/wheels.

    1997 Trek 820 Mountain Bike Conversion

    This is my do-it-all bike. Finished the build yesterday. Running SS for now. I'm not new to SS. I rode a 29 lb. 29er for 5 years. :D

    1997 Trek 820

    This doesn't qualify as "vintage", but it is a conversion nonetheless. Running SS for now. Soon to be a full out touring bike. The frame/fork geometry is similar to an ideal touring bike.

    Now,...
