1984 Trek 610 Vintage Touring Road Bike
- $300 (Roswell)
https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/bik/5436961937.html



1984 Trek 610 Sport Touring Bike
Reynolds 531 Frame

Size 22" (good for about 5'8 to 6' depending on proportions).

Shimano 600 components
Shimano 105 Derailleur

The body has some minor scratches, but has been touched up.

Saddle shown not included (will come with something cheaper). $100 extra if you really want the VO saddle (it is brand new)

The frame shows its age but no damage. Stickers are in better than average shape.

All around great bike. If you are looking for a solid 531, look no further.

I have read this is a great frame for a 650b conversion as well.

Feel free to email any questions.

noglider will probably confirm that these were the rage in the late '70s and early '80s, some of them even with people tall enough to ride them. I can straddle one but it must be done gently, and lots of the buyers did more pushing around than actually pedaling. This one, with its seat all the way down, was probably one of those. Panasonic actually made a taller 28" frame in a couple of its models and a certain portion of the populace helped keep bike shops in business buying bikes like this, as they did with "crack racks" in the '90s. That was the roof rack craze.

One local shop even had a red-ink stamp made up for the receipts when bikes like this were sold: FRAME SIZE NOT RECOMMENDED.

Trek 720/728 looks to be in great shape for a reasonable price, $550

https://desmoines.craigslist.org/bik/5436813349.html

You need long legs to ride this though; it's a 63 cm frame.

Good price for a cool bike. It's a short one though. Would like to get my hands on one of these in a proper size.

Well I used to live in Boston . . . .

Iowa is happy hunting grounds for vintage Treks, that's for sure. I picked up four this year: a 1980ish Trek 420 for my daughter, a 1992 Trek 950, a 1984 Trek 610, and a 1978 TX 900.

Yeah I wondered why you see these types of frames pop up now and then and they always seem to be from the 70's. Seems like a frame that size would have a lot of shortcomings, I can see why some shops would've stamped the receipt 'not recommended'. I guess if you're really tall though, what other option would you have if you wanted to ride?

What a lot of young riders don't realize is that bikes of this era were limited to a seatpost length of about 8 inches max, so 6" of useable length. There just weren't super-long 350mm and 400mm seatposts until well into the MTB years, longer seatposts siimply weren't made. A tall person on a 23" or even a 25" frame could not get the leg extension he needed, so a frame this size was the only choice for the tall ones. One of my wife's co-workers rode his bike over to our place and parked it in the driveway. I could see the distinctive black and gold across the yard and said, "'81 Puch Pathfinder in a twenty-seven-inch frame size." He was even more impressed when on closer inspection I found my own initials on the bike's shop sticker. I'd assembled it when new. This guy was actually tall enough to warrant a frame that large.

Pretty good deal on an '87 Peugeot Tourmalet 60cm, all OEM equipment including original tires from the factory, dunno what's up with the seat but it looks like it was ridden a few times and put in a garage to sit for 25 years. Sealed F-A-G BB on this bike. I recently found a 57cm in even better shape, all original sans pedals for less money and I love the ride. $20 shipping - not sure how Salvation Army will do it or if they allow local pickup: Vintage Peugeot 12 Speed Bicycle Color White 24 inch Frame | eBay
Original catalog page: https://cyclespeugeot.com/images/1987..._Tourmalet.jpg



Peugeot PH12 Centennial at $99/local pickup which is a steal considering it's nearly all-original, including the bottle cage - this has been floating around on eBay for a couple of months now w/o a sale: Vintage 1982 Peugeot Centennial Edition PH12 Carbolite 103 Steel | eBay
Link to the original catalog page: https://cyclespeugeot.com/images/1982...0_frameset.jpg



(Late?) 1980s Torelli $375/local pickup, not far from where they were made or distributed IIRC, awesome flipper tape, full Campy, etched/panto'd chainring, RD/FD/etc, looks to be ~58cm?: Vintage Torelli Road Bike Campagnola Parts | eBay
