Just picked up this beautiful Trek today at the local thrift store for $60. My size too! Ignore the horrifying stem and bars, those will get tossed. Seems like this is a frankenbike as far as parts go so Im thinking I will sell the shifters and derailers on ebay and either put modern components on or make it a single speed for now. Im really not interested in having a DT friction shifted bike. Plus, I dont think many of the components are original anyway.
Thoughts on this idea? Im torn on what I can do to build this bike up into something worthy of the frame. Usually all my bikes are old junk! Was the 710 a racing model? Sport touring? Im not sure which direction to go with it.
