Yeah, it is a good looking one, isn't it? In my experience, these tallest Trek frames range from 63cm to 66cm. They weren't always so precise over there in Waterloo. This one looks every bit of 66cm, as the seller states. I'm willing to facilitate, if you think it'll fit. Send me a message and we'll see if we can figure it out.

Not so much on the images - try making sure you click "copy image address" when looking at the image in google pictures.

The Maes 1970 only one size: 42/38.

Hmm.

Copy image address and paste using google photos does not append a .jpg extension on the direct link. If I do that, it shows as a broken image icon in my post on my machine (MBP) using chrome browser.

There are several threads about this problem on various forums, someone developed a chrome extension that adds ' -tmp.jpg ' to the image address automatically. Doing that, the images appear fine - on my machine using chrome.

Google seems to be going out of their way to make direct linking to photos difficult.

Did you copy the address from the address bar (doesn't work), or right click on the image and then click "copy image address" (works for me)? I know, it's a major pain.

Right click - copy image address.

Google also has an option to create a link via the 'share' icon. It doesn't work either. It still gives a link without a .jpg extension which most [img][/img] embed codes don't like. It's a much shorter link than the right click copy image address link.

Full right click addy is terrible: the chrome extension I used adds "-tmp.jpg" after the "-no" at the end of all this gibberish.

HackinTrek 330

So this is my second to latest Trek. I bought it to try a 650b conversion on. The color is a Battleship gray and in rough shape. Ten footer.

Got a great deal on a wheel set from @Shinkers.

I found the brake levers and shifters on a trashed Miyata 210.
Bar, stem, and RD from the parts stash.

Purchased items were Surly rear brake cable hanger and brakes. Had Tektro 559’s on at first but just could not deal with the look.

It rode pretty well today. Hope to enjoy this one for a while.

The shift cables will get cut down after I get the fit dialed in.

1997 Trek 730 MultiTrack. This was my winter project - a CL find. It needed a lot of cleaning and accessories. Now it's time to ride.

1983 Trek 400

Appears to be stock with suntour vx drive/shifters. The bb shell has a trek cover/guide so did not remove to look at sn but assume likely one of the Japanese imports. Picked up in trade but came from estate sale--somebody took good care of it. Has been given overhaul for the locally weak mkt against my better judgement but I have a soft spot for old treks.

Here's my 86 Tri Series with full Ultegra drivetrain. I still need to handle the saddle and seatpost situation.

@TDK08 that looks great! Trek was hit or miss on the color combos for me (on their '80s models), but this one is a hit--one of my favorites. You matched everything nicely, and I am digging the deep V wheels (what are they??)! And that era of 10-speed Ultegra is so smooth with its shifting.

Thank you, I'm a big fan of the subdued color scheme and graphics.

The wheels are a set of older Mavic CXP 30's laced to ultegra hubs. Not what I ideally want, but it gets me on the road and they are bulletproof (heavy!). The photos don't easily reveal that they are gold colored.

I'm thinking black bar tape, polished seatpost, and black saddle.

Very nice. I remember having a set of Dura Ace hubs laced to Weinmann DP18 wheels. Deep V, heavy. Acceleration is not necessarily its forte, but once rolling it was fast, solid, and kept rolling (flywheel effect of heavy rotational mass).

Finally, I have my 82 Trek 61x built up. I have not taken it on a ride yet but I will be tomorrow morning. I bought it as a frameset with headset and paid a bit too much for it but I had been waiting for an early 80's 531 Trek in my size and was tired of waiting. According to vintage-trek.com this is one of a small batch of 82's that were either made in a separate Trek facility or contracted out. The serial number starts with an "N" and I have no clue if there is a way to tell what model it was eventually built into or if it was sold only as a frameset.

I did my usual obsessive online searching and found that there are some differences among the 61x models and I wonder if the differences can be accounted for by the different factory. The differences I can find are the brake bridge which is not flat on top, the seat post binder is brazed on instead of being a part of the lug, the head tube lugs have points on them in the front and the fork has a different crown that is more rounded on the outside of the fork leg and have long extensions on the inside (not the death fork lugs I have seen on other 61x's of that year).

The components are a mish mash of stuff I had on hand and I may end up trying to get it more period correct eventually.

The brake bridge on other 600 models have a flat top. This one has flats brazed on where the brake bolts up but the top is just the exposed bridge.

Right at that point where Trek was growing exponentially- and trying to keep up with demand. Goofy stuff happens, goofy stuff goes out the door- I saw a chainstay bridge that looked like I did it. Drunk and on PCP. Wearing oven mitts. Made of concrete.

Yeah, none of this looks poorly done thankfully. I kind of like knowing that this is an unusual bike.

I know what you mean. I've owned six early and mid 80s Treks, and five of them were perfectly finished. The sixth is an '82 710 that I bought recently. It has gobs of silver in several places. It's only cosmetic, the bike rides beautifully and otherwise everything is spot on so it doesn't bother me too much. I just figure mine was probably brazed first thing on a Monday morning by someone with a hangover.

This is an early bridge, before Trek went to the one piece bridges machined from bar stock.

Seat post binder is brazed on instead of being a part of the lug casting.
The earlier binders were not cast, but simply bulge-formed as part of the Nikko lug set. The separate binder can be considered superior.

Fork has a different crown.
This is an Ishiwata SCM crown and indicates that the fork was Waterloo-made, rather than imported pre-brazed from Japan. Those crowns were later used in a modified version in the first production run of the Trek 170 frame, Trek's top of the line racing frame.
