So, yes, I now have more invested in the fenders than I do in the bike.

I am going to put a rack on the back and this will now be my daily commuter -- after a couple of shakedown rides I'm putting my Trek 520 up for sale. Am going to ride all winter as is and then put bar-end shifters on it and (likely) change out the Biopace chainrings. (Changes to date: new tires, tubes, brake cables, brake pads, stem, handlebar tape, brake levers, brake hoods).

What kind of rear rack should go on this?

Excellent! What kind of load are you planning to carry on the rear rack?
