FS: 1985 Trek 760 Frame & Fork - 57cm

Bought this on the forum many years ago and it has sat in a cardboard box ever since. While a very nice frameset, it's a smidge small for me and would compete for riding time with the rest of the stable. Needs to go to a new home for some proper attention. Condition is good survivor IMO. Some chips and scratches but far less than you'd expect for it's age. Decals are in fair-to-good shape. No rust on the cable guides or dropouts. Although my pics do this frame absolutely no justice, the paint will still buff to a deep Beaujolais (Trek's name) that contains a slight amount of flake for extra brilliance.

Seat tube: 57cm c-t-c
Top tube: 57cm c-t-c
Rear spacing: 127mm
Tubing: Reynolds 531c (this stuff is really light and makes a blazing fast bike)
Has the oft-discussed portacatena drilling on the DS dropout if you're into that sort of thing.

A few pics follow and more can be found here: https://www.bikeforums.net/g/album/16932169

$220 + $50 shipping via Ship Bikes. PPFF or buyer covers merchant fees. CONUS only. - SOLD

I bet that would be a great candidate for a 650b x 38mm conversion.
