1983 Trek 970

I just picked up a 1973 Trek 970 Frameset. This handmade frame is the last of the Columbus tubing Treks. Some Trek experts consider it to be one of the most collectable Treks.

What would an used-but-good condition Trek 970 be worth completed in Campy Super Record?

On a longshot, would you be interested in trading a 970 frame in a 60 for a 56, if you're is such a size?

If it's a genuine Waterloo Columbus hand-build of course it's worthy of Campy Super Record.

Value? Not my deal. I'd ride it.

So what did you get for it? Might as well scavenge some utility here and answer the question in the first post...

Wait, what? Why not share the price? Prices aren't known any other way than previous sales.
