Now the touring version with canti brakes or anything but there are longer chainstays on it and eyelets and barend shifters. Full shimano 600 group.
The vintage trek brochure says its more race oriented but not sure what they mean as they were just getting into the biz at that point.

Its a repaint with some sort of TT dent so I'd have to strip and paint or PC, then re-decal it and clean/refurb all parts on it to its original glory.

If the dent isn't so bad I may embark on the journey. What would a reasonable value be on it when completely redone?

So its been repainted, it has the wrong FD and tight moving suntour barcons.
Looks like the frame is ok but for a little ding in the top tube about 1/2 the size of a dime.
I think I may pick it up and mess with it. t looks to have a lot of tire clearance so I may be able to slap some fat rubber on it. It feels light and I bet the Trek frame rides great, even if it looks like a train wreck.

Once completely restored, what might the value be?
