New to me Trek build

Finished this build a couple of weeks ago. Bought the frame from someone Iíve come to know in Illinois.

The only thing I had to buy for this frame set was the seatpost. Runs a compact double crank and 7 speed cassette.
Running 700 x 32 tires that have a real nice ride.. Another case of steel is real

Vittoria 700 x 32. These are touring tire that are a bit heavier but should run many miles.
