Not a lot of info from the seller, but going for 40 though. The frame has been painted over but is peeling and falling off. The original frame color is red. It has a Trek headbadge decal so I can tell that. very short head tube though, and downtube shifters. If I get more pictures I will upload.

Looks like a frankenbiked 1985 Trek 420, except that rear derailleur cable is running through the chainstay. So, it may have been a running change or the non-catalogued 1985 version.

Worth about $40. Total rebuild needed. In the end it will be worth less than you spent. It's possible that a weak stripper would leave the original red paint intact because Trek originally used Imron, a very durable 2-part epoxy paint.
