    New to this section of the site

    Hello all, I have been hanging out in the C+V section since I found this great site. I have been bitten by the touring bug lately since I ended up with some sweet bikes and plan on putting them to use some day soon.

    I have 2 right now, But one is a project as you can see.

    My Trek 520 "Cirrus" I doubt the bike had 50 miles on it when I picked it up. The tires were dry rotted and it was missing a crank arm. I replaced the crank set and tires then added a brooks. I toyed with selling it but came to my senses.







    This poor, poor Miyata 610 that I plan to build one day

    Nice Trek but the Miyata needs some love. Is the paint rusted or just dirty? If rusted, it might be a good candidate for an inexpensive powdercoat.

    The plan is to fully strip it and build it from the ground up. There was not a lot that could be saved.

    Ha!

    The 1st pic I ever posted here was a pic of a red-on-grey Miyata 310 I'd resurrected for commuting. It was posed in my laundry room as well - must be a Texas thing.

    Welcome Zach.
