Nice find! I like folders too.

lol. Well this is something new for me to do, I've never really been into biking, except for a short dive into mountain biking, but road bikes are more as interesting and with a greenway right by my house, its very easy to ride.

Anyone wouldn't happen to know where I can find suteki decals? I'm planning on repainting the bike in the next few months, white and black should look nice, but I want to keep the original decals.

Usual recommendation would be to try eBay. You could also ask JRRestore (a BF member)--send him a PM.

Just finished my '78 Trek 900 with Shimano 600 Arabesque. A few fudges here and there, a Sram PC48 chain for smooth and quiet running, and a tall stem for comfortable days in the saddle. I had posted this bike in "Catch Of The Day" earlier in the year after picking it up on CL for $50.

The Trek looks good! Nice job. Are you going to add fenders at some point?

Thanks, ollo_ollo. I'm still debating the fender question. I have other bikes with fenders, so this might just be used in dry weather. Of course, as you know Washington weather, that might limit it's use a bit.

hi guys- thought i'd say hello. here's one of my sports. i bought this one (my first) six months ago and have added a copper-brown one, a tourist, a sprite, two schwinn suburbans, a raleigh twenty, international, and a surly lht since then. you could say i got it bad.



this one is real clean. i've since put a carradice green bag on back and a brooks b-66 on her. i'll upload the others as i photograph them. long live three speeds!

Nice indeed! How does it ride? What a steal...a Columbus framed Trek for $50! If you do add fenders, my vote is for yellow!

Thanks JYB.

I've only had the chance to test ride it up and down the road, but so far, so good. The Shimano 600 drivetrain with the SRAM chain is suprisingly smooth and quiet.

Hmm, yellow fenders? I had to talk myself into going with yellow tires!

Wow, very nice, and it looks just my size! We don't need a close up of that derailleur, we need closeups of those lugs!

There are a few more on flickr

I've actually been sitting on this bike since March. It still needs a new chain, some 700x28 skinwall tires, and some classy fenders. The drivetrain is all as-purchased. I swapped out the stem, bars, levers (the ones it came with were cheapie aeros), post, saddle, and pedals. I also rebuilt the rear wheel, repacked the bb and rear hub, and replaced a stripped seat binder bolt.

I always thought the older Cannondales looked great, and your's appears to be cleaner than many I've seen. Very nice!
