Winter Project (frickin last year!!!)

So I've got a couple bikes in the LBS this winter. A Gunnar, Mercian and Trek 612.

I got an email, they wanted to talk about them, and they have one ready. I thought it was the Mercian. It was just getting a new stem.

Out comes this:

Rest of the story

I honestly cannot remember owning a purple bike. I cannot remember owning a Trek 560.

The LBS swore the build components were mine. Which makes sense. I have several Shimano 600 sets.

I pray someone recognizes this frame. I pray that person also remembers selling this frame to me......cause I don't plan on giving this back. It is a fun ride!!!
