Trek 640 frame/fork, 61cm c-t

Black/red Trek 640, 61cm c-t seat tube, 57cm c-c top tube. Reynolds 531 butted main tubes. 126mm rear dropouts. Includes tange levin headset and SR seat post. There are some scratches in the paint, but overall not bad, everyone has their own opinion, so see pics. There is a deep scratch on the seat tube above the front derailleur mount area, frame might have a dent there, but very hard to tell because it is on top of the decal. Has a little bubbling on the top tube under the cable housing. Dates to 1983, one year model. $125.00 plus shipping.

Classic sports tourer originally spec'ed with 27" wheels - perfect candidate for a 700c conversion with nice wide tires to make a comfy ride even more so. If I didn't already have a Trek in that size...

Or even better (IMHO) a 650b conversion that is already low-mid trail and will take 42mm tires with only minor relief in the chainstays. I had a 600 series from the same year and the ride was sublime. If it were the next size up it'd have to be mine.

Are you saying you can bend the chainstays?

They can be dimpled to accept larger tires.

Yeah this would somewhat duplicate my 1982 613 or I'd be all over it.

Guys, I have bought three of the old 600 series Treks to restore for my kids. This is an excellent value.

Campagnerdo,

Thanks for the P.M. Unfortunately I cannot send one back to you until I have posted at least 10 times and I can only post 5 x in 24 hrs. So I probably can't P.M. with you until late tomorrow night. I have a question about the scratch on the seat tube. Does the scratch go into the metal? If so, and estimate by how much? I can deal with the cosmetics of having to touch up paint a little but structural compromise with a deep gouge in the tubing another.

Hi,
The scratch is on top of a thick decal and goes into the paint. I do not know if the metal surface itself is scratched or dinged. The decal is scratched around the scratch and presents an uneven surface, and it is not possible to get a smooth "feel" on the metal to know if there is a ding. I think the only way to get a definitive assessment would be to strip the decal and the paint off the tubing to see the metal surface itself at and around the scratch. I don't think that would be a good idea. Sorry, I'm not trying to be elusive.
