'89 Trek 660 "Keeper of the Flame"

I got the frame in an CL trade... just a headset and BB included. A little research showed that 89 was the the last year that Trek made
a steel road bike... although they continued to make steel touring bikes into the 90's. This frame was Tru Temper Team tubing and forks.

I decided to build it up as a lightweight steel classic era bike. Campy shifters and FD, Crane Black RD, Superbe 175mm cranks, Shimano 600
side-pulls, Pro-Ace pedals, Sakae seat-post, ITM stem & engraved bars and Mallaird hubs with Rigida 13/19 rims. As there is 2 feet of snow
on the ground, I will have to wait a few months for a first ride.

*** Weight is 23.75 lbs..... not bad for a 25" frame





Also have a '90 Trek 1400
