rough estimate of a Trek

Whats a rough estimate of a 1982 Trek 950 with full Dura Ace EX. I believe these were the 959 and the Campy was 952. So what are these selling for in decent condition? Thanks.

No idea as you hardly ever see them, but I would say that bike if SN confirms is worth more than about any other trek. Is that LBS offered? Looks like decent shape, would love to ride it a bit to test--22.5in I assume.

Have you verified the model year by checking the serial number?

Looks to me like like the graphics are not original. I'm no expert, but I've never seen an original Trek come from the factory with a set tube decal applied to the down tube. and the paint is too bright to be original on a bike that old. In my experience, white fades darker with age, making me think this bike is a repait, which will affect the collector value (decrease market value of bike).

You can go to the VintageTrek Website and develop a pretty good idea of the model year of a Trek bike from the headbadge, the color, and the group components.

While there are some mistakes in the information listed on Vintage Trek, for the most part the information is accurate. White is not a color listed for any model year Trek 950 road bike.

This appears to be a 1982 Trek 959, which came stock with Dura Ace EX. The 1982 catalog shows the blue panels on the downtube, which is really weird to me. But it's there in the catalog. 1982 Trek Bicycle Brochure

Is it the real deal? I don't know. But it could be. It does look like a repaint to me as well but impossible to tell from the lousy photo. Are you buying or selling?

An Italian American, Columbus SL/SP and Campy dropouts!

My guestimate would be $575 +/- 10%, assuming that is original paint. Beyond low $600's, you can find and buy a very nice Serottas, Nobilette, Davidson, Waterford, and real Italian steel.

Looks like an 82 950...top of the line racing bike. Seems like I saw a really nice one sell on ebay recently for 1,200-1,400+-. Can't quite recall, but I know it sold over $1000+. Might have been the Camp model?..

What grabbed me was on the vintage trek site, he said to contact him if the serial number begins in the letter O.

Key to these high end treks is the condition and origanality. Condition on that bike is OK, and not sure the components are original or correct? In that case $600+-

Well I pulled the trigger, it's all Dura Ace Ex except for Campy Record cranks. Dura Ace stem and fluted seatpost.
