That's a lovely build!!!

Again, another early 720 with the dual eyelets on the fork ends.

When I was actively looking for bikes, I'd always see 56/22.5" frames and bigger. Without real scientific data- I'd guess there are much much fewer 19" frames than any other size- and it just so happens this one fits like a glove. There's something *right* about Trek's touring geometry-

Here's a 1982 Trek 614 I built up recently.

I'm enjoying it a lot.

So according to the Trek Serial Number site ( Vintage Trek Serial Numbers 1984 ) in 1984 there were only 270 built in size 19. This is out of 3010 built in that year (according to serial number). I would agree that the fit is perfect!

Front rack is Nitto M12 Front Rack. A slight amount of bending of the stays but otherwise fits very well and for the riding I normally do, works well with the Nashbar rack for the back. Lighter and carries most everything I need on longer day rides.

Picked this up last week. Took lots of cleaning and detailing, but was working great.
1998 Trek 2300. The last year for these glued carbon/aluminum models
My 2100 (still have it) was my favorite distance bike 20 years ago, and I hope this will be as good or better!

I have one that will look very much like this after the paint job that's coming up, probably in April.
