A trip to vintage-trek will decide your serial number and provide the model year and their listed size. Looks like its 82/83-ish.

I have one of these full 531C bikes. I think they were only offered in 1983. Very nice riding frame. Takes 32s easily. GLWS.

Under-the-BB cables suggest '83 (I think......).

The catalog page for those interested. If it was 22.5 I'd have bought it. These early 80's sport-touring treks really do both well, with the rack braze-ons and ability to take 32's with ease, it's an excellent bike, especially with 531c (the "c" here being "competition", a lighter variant of the standard 531).

Benotto, I've searched for a geometry sheet online but can't find one. Would you mind measuring the chainstay length, and then the width between the fork legs at the crown? And maybe double-checking the top tube length (I think these were 58cm in metric; 23" is just a bit longer than that)? Thanks!

The Trek brochures have that info on geometry. Search for that. I believe the 83 catalog was in two parts and the geometry was in the first part. They wont have fork width, but 32s fit easy on my 22.5 version.

I saw the geometry for one size, but not a grid for all sizes. Did I miss that? What I did find, shows 43cm for the chainstay length. Am I missing something?

That is the one I was referring to. I haven’t seen one for the other sizes.
