I have a 1982 Trek 614 that was originally bought set up for touring, so it has a triple crankset for example, its a tall bike but i would need to measure it to be sure its 62 or over..
ill take a look tonight and measure.

Hi Gary, thanks for pointing out that the 720 was only made up until 1985, I'll take a look at some other models and see if any others check all the boxes
Basically im looking for:
  1. Full chromoly (531 or something else nice)
  2. 61 to 63 cm
  3. Cantilever brakes
  4. Decent rack mounts front and back
  5. Lugs
  6. 130mm spacing is a bonus but I'm not attached to the idea
  7. Would love a Trek or Miyata 1000 but would consider a Fuji or other nice brand if the bike met my other requirements.
