I'm not a Trek guy , maybe some day I think they are pretty cool . I ran across this while looking for a Centurion . Looks racer type , higher up the scale , 56cm ? Decent price ?

^^^^^^^^ In the Dictionary of American Expressions, there should be a photo of that ^^^^^^ frame in the margin next to the entry for "Rode hard and put away wet". I'd like a hit of whatever that seller is smoking. We've picked up complete or near complete all-531 Treks from that era, in MUCH better shape, for half that.

Shatters the illusion that we midwesterners have, that things don't rust in So-Cal.....

It's an '85 470, which is basicly a 460 with Shimano 600. Tru-Temper tubing I think. Low-mid level on the scale. Priced kind of high unless the paint was near perfect.

Yep, TrueTemper decal on this frame, and that's the spec in the catalog. Way more than "kind of" high; that's a $50 frame, even with the shiny bits, and only if it were (mostly) rust-free.

1982 Trek 412 25.5" from earlier in this thread, now 650b converted. Fender-less for summer.

Pacenti PL23s, old XT hubs, 650x42 Compass "Babyshoe Pass" Extra light tires. Still plenty of room for fenders.

Sooo Does anyone know what spindle size I need for a silstar crank? I'm not sure what size I need. I have a 1980 trek 412, I am wanting to change it out to a sealed bottom bracket but am unsure of the size. The one I have Im pretty sure is not the original spindle size, it is a 120mm

Do you currently have the Silstar crank installed on the 120 mm spindle? If so, does it fit well to the frame? If it does, just get a 120 mm sealed bottom bracket. If not, adjust accordingly bigger or smaller. It’s kind of guesswork I these situations.

If you err on the side of caution, you can always use up to ~2mm cassette spacer to move the BB outboard on the drive side. I had to do that to get a Sugino AT crank to fit on a 127mm BB!

Well, they're both green, and you do have a whole lot of "business" going on.

Beautiful - and a Trek model that I've never seen before. 1977 or 78? The green is unusual.

I found one searchable BF thread for a TX304, but it appears to be one other than yours. Did you create a BF build thread for this bike? If not, you should - inquiring minds want to know.
