That was a special limited edition "South Paw" version for left handed riders. I believe they were sold exclusively by Flanders Leftorium.

Trek 730, R531, Shimano 600 (Arabesque). $480 obo +$100 shipping (located in Cali).



I've only started looking at Trek (though their touring models) - this seems to be a decent deal considering the 'Make an Offer' option. More so if you're local'ish and can circumvent the shipping fee. Correct me on pricing if I'm wrong - I don't have a feel for valuation on these yet...

...or...

A clean 500 series, BIN $299.

I don't understand the drive line being for left-handed riders. Maybe the brakes and/or the shifters. I don't see any benefit to this.

'93 Serotta - Colorado Steel frame w/ steel fork in great shape. Has Campy brifters, 8 speed chorus rear derailleur, mirage front, brakes, 8 speed rear cassette, 165 crank arms. 53.5 with a 54.5 top tube, c-c. Handle bars are ~ 45 cm, and mounted on a mountain bike stem. Has good Hutchinson tires, crank is 50/39. Wheels: Campy hubs, Mavic Open Pro rims. This bike tracks well and corners great. Need to move it to clear out space, pronto!

I love this bike, but have a few too many, including a Serotta Ti frame, which is my go-to bike.

And it's built in Chicago. Probably in their Paramount division. You can tell by the round logo on the box.
