1990 Trek 520 gravel/touring build, 58cm

SOLD!

Hey everyone -

This isn't getting a lot of traction locally, so I'm posting it here although the build isn't really to the taste of this forum.

For sale is a well-loved 1990 Trek 520.

- Frame: True Temper touring tubes, repainted with some chips but rust- and dent-free
- Wheelset: Deore LX hubs laced to Sun CR-18s, fat Panaracer Gravel King SKs with less than 500 miles
- Drivetrain: 1x10 with Deore LX cranks, 40t RaceFace chainring, 11-42t Sunrace cassette, Deore XT rear mech shifted with DuraAce bar end shifter.
- Cockpit: Soma Portola bars, Tektro levers and cantis, Charge Spoon saddle, new cables, chain, pads, etc.

Asking $335 shipped for the complete bike, $140 shipped for the frameset, steatpost, stem, and headset.

Thanks!

I like the splatter paint as much as the build if not more. If it were my size, I'd be all over it.

bummed that this wasn't available when i was looking for a bike, now that i'm a few hundred into my build, i can't justify buying another bike. ugh, this is just about perfect, too.

oh well, free bump.
