My 1986 Trek 560 Pro Series

Thought I'd start a thread since I started work on it today. Got this frameset for $70 the other day. Looks like it hasn't been used in ages.
Today I did the disassembly. Then gave the frame and fork a wash. Applied some naval jelly to the rust spots. Another wash. Sun dried it with our lovely warm weather. Then touched up the rust spots as best as I could. At the same time I started cleaning the parts that came on the bike. Next up will be a polish, clear coat, then a wax.
Also grabbed a freebie damaged Fuji which will donate it's front wheel to the Trek. It's a Mavic cxp22 with 105 hub.Going with black wheels. The rear is coming from my Shogun.
Will also be going with black cable housing, yellow tape and maybe a yellow saddle if I can find what I want.

I bought mine last summer for $120 complete with a Ultegra/DA 9 speed group. Paint was almost mint, but the fork decals were faded so I got some new ones from Velocals. The rear stays were even cold set to 130mm. Quickest, most razor sharp handling bike I've ever owned. It's stripped down and I'm going to build it back up with a 6700 group and tubulars this summer.

Such a great colour combination. Personally, with a bike that nice I would spring for an aluminum HS.

I owned that exact frame, same color and everything. I loved the look of the Trek investment cast lugs. My dad, who doesnt care about bikes, moved it in the garage one day and was amazed at how light it was.

Sweet. Looks like a white saddle goes well with the color lines. Hmmmm.....

I’ll play. Previous owner had the one below on his trainer, complete with dorky handlebars. This was a quick redo with a set of bars, levers, cables lying around. Didn’t even trim housing changed out Acera RD.

Great clean up job! @2cam16 are your brakes missing the cable adjusters? I went looking for some to replace the one gone from mine: could not find.

I am painting a frame in mustard and am so tempted to mix in some white too.

Thanks Law! Actually they're just off-camera with other parts. Didn't bother to put them on for the shot. lol
What I do need, once again, are brake hoods for 600 aero levers so if you have some spares laying around, I'd be glad to take them off your hands.

@2cam16 we can both dream of getting some of those!

I have a set of 600 levers that get the baby treatment till I get another hood backup.

I've heard it's easier to buy whole levers or donor bikes to acquire them. It's that finding something close to fit.

All good,Law. They have them on EBay for around $10-$13 shipped. At least for my levers.

The problem I've had with mine is finding touch up paint in the proper shade of yellow. It's like a mustard color.

I didn't even bother. I just took the only yellow model paint I have and called it a day.

Those look nicer than the paper ones that Trek put on them. They just go.
