The color combo marks mine as a 1989. This bike is purported to have been used to view the Tour de France many years ago! The color is denim and really makes the yellow lettering pop!!!

Why is that did they have a similar color theme? Also I love this bike, I am in KC so everyone thinks it is a Chiefs themed bike. So I hammed up the red and yellow even more.

Quit laughing. It's still a Trek.....................

The local Madone mafia, though, are still scratching their heads.
To get theirs to 16.2 lbs, it takes the $$ for a couple of these.

Trek 660 Brifter Upgrade

Revised with brifters. The stems got to go though, too flexy.

'78 Trek 710, Reynolds 531, Campy dropouts. Built it up to find it a touch too small . Now it's riding around Seattle.

That's a grail bike for me, orange Trek 710. Very nice!

Thanks. So far I have been nothing but pleased with it. I feel like a kid looking for any excuse to run to the grocery or the corner store... or just a quick ride around the block.

Just like with our motorcycles..."the closer we got to home, the better the bike ran!". You find yourself taking the long way home!

Not seeing on Vintage Trek where that was a standard color. I do know they would let you order it.
Here is my 82 730 (Campy drops) and I think its a factory applied paint job though the standard color would have been pewter metallic with a burgundy head tube.

I just picked up a second old Trek, a 1983 600. I haven't really cleaned it up yet, but it looks to be in near mint shape! Added new bar tape and a B17 today.



Here's my 1995 660 that I changed the gearing on.

Mmm, so nice, and Trek had some really nice colors back then. I love my 560, which I believe has the same geometry as the 660, but lower end build and a downgrade in tubing. But I love mine to death, smooth smooth smooth silky frame.

Yesterday I ran into a guy in the hallway with an old Trek sweatshirt. It had the late 80s/early 90s logo and headbadge design. I mentioned to him that it was a cool sweatshirt- and he seemed very unaware of the "cool" factor of the old Trek SWAG.
