Just bought this same '83 Trek 970 frame from Barrettscv for a winter build. I actually built one like it 30 years ago and regretted having to sell it. I'll be touching up the few chipped paint spots and putting on new original repro' decals before fitting it out with mostly period correct parts albeit with some concessions to modernity including a VO fluted compact crank (modified with different chainrings) and some sealed bearing hubs, headset, BB and even derailleur pulleys. Probably not going full Campy with this though just to be a little different.....as always with me.
