Still an awesome bike.

The 300 and some 400 series were a complete (unpainted) frame and fork from Japan, but painted and assembled in Waterloo. The 500, 600, and 800 (MTB) series had the main triangle built in Waterloo, the pre-assembled rear stays were attached, and the whole works painted and assembled in Waterloo. The 700, 900, and 170 series were completely built, painted, and assembled in Waterloo. Some 600 series were all Reynolds 531 frames. Trek had Reynolds seatstays and chain stays shipped from England to Japan, where they were assembled into the rear triangle assemblies and then shipped to Waterloo to be attached to the main frame.

I put hipster wheels and blue tires on my Trek 760 and rode it for a bit.
Afterwards, I got a PBR, a tattoo and a nose piercing, but I couldn't get into my skinny jeans.

^ Trek 760 that's slightly newer than yours. Too big though so no hipsterfication. I picked it up hoping it would have a first generation Superbe derailleur but alas, it evades me still.

Wow, so many nice vintage Treks!

My first road bike, purchased new in 1985, was a Trek 4xx? with Campagnolo Triomphe drivetrain and SR filler (and this is apparantly the only picture I have that shows it circa 1987)


Current project, 1979 Trek 930, frame damage under repair


Current project, 1987 Trek 520, disassembled for complete rebuild

Those were the best, weren't they? I got rid of most of my Superbe components when I sold of the parts from the 760 I had (whose seat stay cracked). Still have the wheels with the Superbe hubs though. I would like to build up an early 80's something-or-other with a Superbe or Cyclone group...

Trek 600

My two favorite bikes in my collection are my Trek 600 and Trek 560 Professional Series. Both are fantastic bikes. When I saw a Trek 600 listed on Ebay at a great price, I hesitated for a minute to consider the distance and then I made the purchase. After a 180 mile round trip, I now own another one.

Although I don't need two, It was great rehabbing another 600. In my opinion, Vintage Treks are highly underrated. This bike has a fantastic ride!

A couple of 83's to add...

I've posted these everywhere else, so why not here in the appropriate thread?

I came across these in the last couple of months; the 620 I converted to a modern 8 speed drive train, and the 600 I made into a 2 speed.



I agree with bikemanbob; these older steel Treks ride so nicely!

I just got this one last week. I also have an 8000 from 1991 that my son took with him to college. I'm the original owner of the 8000. I still needed a commuter bike and I figured I'd try to match what I had and liked. Note that the tires are new for commuting, the originals are off the side out of the picture.

I picked up a 1985 660 last week, it was in good shape except for being very dirty and had been unused for a long time. Got it striped down and cleanedand I am in the process of getting it ready to ride. I changed the drivetrain so I can ride the hills here, I put a Suntour 14-34 6 spped freewheel on and I'm waiting for a Shimano triple from E-bay to get here. It's about 90 percent ready now. I have all the original Superbe Pro parts tucked away so I can return it to original if I want to.

A 610 I found in rough shape at a local antique center. Parked the 27" helimatic wheels for a pair of campy hubbed mavic wheels, found a period correct pump, pedals and cateye computer (cadence!). I love this thing, it's from an era of the last gasp of friction shifting for shimano. I put a pair of tubular wheels on there the other day and it was like a magic carpet ride. Amazing bike. One of these days I'll paint it proper and get new decals.

As found:



In progress:











Done for now (campy post, concor, white crazy look pedals):


(need a better "now" picture)
