FS: '84 Trek 420 Frameset

howdy -
My TREK 420 is too small for me. I would like to find the framset a new home. I'm open to a frame-swap for something similar (or identical!) but a 58 ~ 60cm seattube length.
Here are the frame measurements:
56cm ST CtC (58cm crank center to top of seat tube)
55cm TT CtC
104cm wheelbase
44cm chainstay
I am open to offers for the frameset: frame / fork / headset / bottom bracket
I would like to get to $150, plus whatever shipping is. I know! That's dang optimistic!! ... but hey, if you don't ask....

I am planning to keep the wheelset. I have plans for the NITTO stem.

SHIMANO 600 Components have been sold: crankset, F/R derailleur, non-aero brake levers
component pics here: https://www.bikeforums.net/g/album/22509619
Current config is right here: The frame doesn't fit pass-around game

- not quite the current configuration, but pretty close.



thanks for shopping

Solid deal! The obvious move here is to build it up with a Suntour Blaze group.

Show a close up of the paint!

I remember the day after I got mine, seeing that Imron in the morning sun was the most magical thing for me.

shimmery paint photo -
paint on the bike is not perfect. so an interested buyer should use that as an excuse to talk my price down......

Hello, i have a couple of 23" center to top ST frames. A couple of early MTB and i have been using a Trek 720 for a city bike 23" center to top.(actually two of those)

All of those would fit big tires but would not feel very sporty.

Any interest in a big tire, not sporty trade? One pic i had handy.

a quick bump. to mark the day. the day my 2 year old GUNNAR crosshairs cracked around the bottom bracket.
is cathartic swearing allowed on the BF-boards?
ok. thanks for reading.
make an offer. hurray as I am contemplating the offer of the TIG welded TREK previously mentioned. i can lower the price. that's what is meant by "make an offer". . . . on the other hand, if you'd like to offer more than asked, i think we can work out a deal.

I think I might have the same year 460 hanging around (just reminded me of the out of sight, out of mind stash), but I am guessing the same size...I picked it up from someone who was about to hack off the derailleur mount to make a fixie. It is half sanded and un-decal-ed. I'll check the size but likely also 22.5" (57cm)

sort of a bump.
it’s still for sale. Several BF-members patiently corresponded with me about swaps. I guess indecision is a decision of sorts.
after cleaning the frame a bit I’ll throw out this as a sales offer:
Frameset; headset; bottom bracket; long reach Tecktros; seat post: $150
(Tektros? TechTros? TeeckTroes?)
- make an offer, as mentioned before.

probably I won’t bump again. I’ll just build it up as a flat bar cruiser and let it live at my in-laws as a holiday Coffee Cruiser.
…. or maybe in the next 5 minutes I’ll decide to do that anyway…. I got lots of parts laying around…..



places I was not careful to protect the paint

my garage is a mess!! Look at this!!

That is my vote.

And I cannot even see the floor of my garage right now, and you can park cars in yours! I haven't parked a car in my garage since 1998...
