I did trim the rack mount rods. It doesn't have the tire probes anymore, .

I have the same levers. Where can I get replacement hoods?

They came with Huret derailleurs. Here is mine when I purchased it. I replaced both the rear derailleur and the wheels.

I purchased a frameset at a rummage sale. The FD is a Suntour Cyclone. I'm assuming that was put on as an upgrade? The rear is still the huret. Does the Huret function well?

IMO- the front Huret or Sachs/Huret is a very nice derailleur.

Again, IMO- the rear Huret or Sachs/Huret Duopar derailleur is not. At the time, they were expensive and desirable derailleurs that would handle a huge rear cog and terrific amount of chain wrap. IME- they're very fragile, but they shift really nice when they're working.

I, personally, would get a GT caged Suntour derailleur (a Cyclone GT would be great on that bike), or one of the later XC Comp or XC Pro derailleurs. Of course, any of the 80s Shimano Deore derailleurs would be very good as well.

Amazon has one of the best prices out there. Cane Creek hoods, about 8-9 bucks a set. Install them with hair spray, after the bars are wrapped, and obviously before the brake cables are installed. They're very comfy and pretty durable, but also stiff and prone to tearing at the seams if you try and push them up to wrap under them. Wrap the bars, make sure the cable ferrule/receivers are off, spray hairspray on the inside of the hoods, and slip them on from the tip of the lever backwards. While the hairspray is still somewhat wet, gently pinch the hood and pull up, to install the cable ferrules. This is not near a seam, so usually this is safely done without tearing anything. Then grasp the sides of the hood, and push the base down around the wrap. If done well, they should give years of use, longer than the originals even.,,,,BD

I'm a fan of Suntour so imho, Golden Boy gave good advise.

Thank you for the great info. I am building a rig for my brother (DOH, too small for me). I will not be running a huge freewheel in the back, nor a triple in the front. Any recommendations?

FWIW, that hasn't been my experience. I have three Duopars in service here, one continuously since 1978, the other two since 1982. No problems, except one of them lost its decorative plastic insert. Still works fine, though.

I know @Bruce27 already answered your specific question, and I'm sure most people know about it already, but the vintage-trek.com website is a great storehouse of information about steel-framed Treks. The 1984 brochure, available here (PDF) or here (HTML), confirms the Duopar equipment.

Always take John's advice with greater weight than mine!

The two places I've found invaluable to researching bikes are Vintage Trek Bikes- Information on Steel Road Bicycles made by the Trek Bicycle Corporation, bike for (obv) Trek specific stuff, and VeloBase.comVeloBase.com for fiddly details of components.

Pretty sure vintage-trek.com should have a full 1984 catalog.

I'm pretty sure I've featured my 1985 Trek 620 on this very thread before, but I just gave it the annual "full monty" service, plus finally decided to retire the old Deore XT "Deerhead" canti brakes for newer versions, because I'm finally old enough to realize that vintage cred ≠ hours of time spent fiddling with those sumbritches.

Anyway, here's George Sr. (father of Tobias, a 1986 Elance 400T that was the classic metallic blue but met an untimely left-hook end)

Just finished tearing down and greasing/cleaning my brother's Trek 610 (1981). Fortunately all the bearings were in good shape. I didn't bother to completely polish all the metal surfaces as it's going to be used as a daily driver. I'm liking it so much I think I'm going to buy it off him!



Obviously it needs a proper seat, but the gel cover will have to do until we find one that's a good fit.

Finally got my newly acquired 1982 Trek 613 up and running and took it out for a quick ride. Still need to change the saddle and would like to replace the cables and get some wider handlebars. I also got a 1980 710 along with this one that I'm getting ready to ride now as well.

Woefully too small for me at 17.5 inches. It's an Easton ProGram framed 7000ZX. Very light! If it was a 22/23 inch, it would stay in the garage.,,,,BD

The first time I saw a Trek road bike was the first time I regretted buying a new PX10.

1985 Trek 620 that I moved down the line today. Cool bike but clearing out some inventory for significantly better...

Just scored this nice one today which according to the seller hasn't been used in 30 years. I believe that it is either a 1980 or 81 Trek 613/614. It was listed on Craigslist with crappy photos but ended up being in nice shape after I gave it a quick wipe down. Since I already recently picked up an 82 613 and an 80 710 I'm planning to do a handlebar swap. I'll be using the bike for mostly city riding and am thinking about mustache or riser bars but I'd love to hear all o your suggestions.

'87 520 work in progress

Riding on 700 x 35C. The stem is a beaut SR forged but too long and might go with a rando bend bar. Bar wrap is not complete but have the vintage Spenco under the Newbaums cloth. The early Cyclone front derailleur is cracked at the mount hinge but still holding. Have a good one inbound and one less thing to worry about. Love this bike and wide gear ratios.

Low rider front Blackburn attachment is on another bike (tandem) and black anodized and shared between both. Someday hope to find a silver lowrider for this one. Day bags were cheapo bargains. Rear trunk is a China ebay unit with integrated side pockets hiding panniers. Also came with a rain cover. The top is insulated for food or drinks. $12 shipped. The front was a Schwinn branded on clearance from Walmart. Rang up for $6! Brand new Axiom Paceline DLX mudguards, $15 on fleabay... dig the reflective material on all of them.

That one looks real nice. I'm hoping to get myself a vintage Trek touring bike one day.
