I used to think I could date the Ross' by their serial number which would suggest this is a '84 model, but now I'm not so sure. Going by the date codes of the components at the Vintage Trek website, it appears the bike is an '81.

It's been in my collection for about a year, but I've since settled on a preference for larger size frames, so this one will be leaving soon.
