1982, NOS, Trek 736 photos

Posting photos of my 1982 Trek 736 that I believe is NOS. I ran across this frame with original Suntour Superbe components around six years ago minus the wheels, stem/bars, saddle, and shifters. The frame and components appear to have never been used. Not even the smallest scratch, pedals have no wear, grease in headset and bottom bracket completely clean. even the dropouts look like the wheels were attached only once. I had wheels built with Suntour Cyclone hubs, Suntour freewheel, and Mavic clincher rims. Used Specialized Armadillo tires with burgundy sidewalls that match the panels on the frame--which i think is kinda cool! Nitto stem and bars, Suntour indexing shifters, and a Concor saddle. All these components NOS. Have not ridden the bike since so it is still NOS.

Gorgeous bike!

I would have to ride it though. I know it's only NOS once, but I wouldn't be able to stop myself.

Very nice. Hard to believe that nobody would have ridden the snot out of it by now. It's such a fantastic race frame.

My size too...

Good lookin' bike. Whether or not to ride (for me) is a question of how many other bikes of that ilk I have lined up along the wall. I don't think it's any great sin to have a beauteous wall-hanger, as long s you're riding something

I have a 1979 Raleigh Comp GS that I ride occasionally. I'm the original owner. I had an older Comp and the seat stay cap cracked. Raleigh honored the warranty but had no Comp Mark frames in my size to replace it so they sent a GS replacement instead. Odd thing was that it came with Campy NR components and Weinmann Carerra brakes. Fun bike. Otherwise I ride a Moots, but mostly run.

Well that's a barn find for sure, and a great example of an first period Trek. The Superbe was fine stuff. Even Campy heads grudgingly admired it.

I still think of Treks from this era as the 'real' ones. When Trek expanded into a full line and introduced all those labor saving cast lugs, there were a few bugs to work out, and quality slipped a bit IMO.

Beautiful. The problem is that a NOS bike is such a burden because you want to keep it NOS.

Very inspiring! I have a 760 (id'd by SN) waiting in the wings. It was rattle canned black with a Giant unicrown fork(ugh!). I found a bent '85 fork the right size and returned it to spec (38 offset). I have been collecting Superbe Pro parts for it. All I need is a HS, post, pedals and if they made them, a stem. I have Pro hubs and a Superbe BB.

My thinking right now is to assemble this puppy as is and see what it looks like, warts and all! Kind of like a rat rod. Thought I had pics on Flickr but can't find them.

Wow, that bike is quite a beauty! +1 in the choice components.

As for never riding it, I wouldn't be able to resist and even if having another bike. To each their own but I prefer to get the whole experience.

It's really a question of time. I have a lot of bikes, work full time, and do marathon training, so the time I have to spend on the bikes is limited. Wish I could ride more. I'd love to spend time on all of them. Maybe in a couple years when I retire????

Beautiful bike. I'd put some better tires on it and ride it immediately, and never worry about keeping it NOS again.

Yes, they did make a Superbe stem, and it's a beauty.

Beautiful bike, love it. I would be torn on whether to ride it or not, as well.

Really nice stem! I believe it is an SR stem rebranded as SunTour. That would make sense given what SunTour was doing with other components (cranks were rebranded Sugino Mighty Comps etc.)

Beauty. I think I'd have to ride it at least once around the block, then kick myself for killing the NOS status.

The Superbe Pro seatpost is very nice, too. It took some getting used to in terms of getting the adjustment right, but I really like it, probably my favorite seatpost.
