Finally finished my Trek!

After many months, the bike is done! I'm still waiting on the seat but everything else is finished and I've been riding it to work. The bike ended up being 21lbs and handles like a dream!

I'm guessing it's an '87 Trek Elance 400. Damn I'm good!

Nice job!

You are severely cross-chaining! Bad! Bad C&V picture-taker. Don't you know the wolves will steal your first-born for that sort of thing?
