@Cheseldine, yours is a year newer and much prettier than mine; something to aspire to.

Reimagined Trek 950 mt bike in service on a grocery run to Trader Joe's.

It'll be getting rear rack and basket installed soon.

Anyone know of a replacement or substitute Shimano Deore thumbshifter cap?

I tried a soda bottle cap but it is a bit too large.

The missing one is prominent in this pic.

Color looks great in the sun. Is this an '82 412?

Do you camp? Do you mind a rather redneck solution? Are you sitting down?

Y'know those 1-lb propane cylinders used for camp stoves (or, alternately, the taller skinnier ones used for torches)? Take the cap from one of those, and reduce the "height" by about 1/3 with a pair of scissors. You may have to trim off more, closer to 1/2 the height. Put a small piece of double-face tape on the underside, and press onto the shifter. Put a black zip-tie around the outside and tighten moderately, and cut the excess. It's actually quite inconspicuous; you have to look closely to see what it actually is. If I think of it, I'll post pics of such a repair tonight.

@LeoGrand this is the Classic & Vintage bike sub-forum, FYI. You're bikes have about 20-25 years approximately before they'd qualify as C&V. I'd try the road, hybrid, or commuter sub-forums as they'd likely appreciate what you have going on here. You're welcome to browse C&V (of course) and find inspiration, perhaps enough to snag a vintage lugged example like you see here.

I, for one, don’t mind seeing new bikes mixed in with C&V stuff. It keeps me from being *too* isolated into C&V.

However- theres a pretty huge gap between a really loose interpretation of “classic” and “vintage” or “whatever” and then just full on new and modern with *NO* “classic” or “vintage.”

In other words: ‘here’s my 1984 Trek 170, and this is my daily rider 2020 Trek Dual Sport...’.

Dig?

Thanks for the reply madpogue.
In years gone by I did camp quite a bit.

I will look into that option.

And my feeling is that there is no need to be so uptight and restrictive. They're all bikes.

Is there not or are there not reasons for categories? There are various categories and sub-categories of bikes; this is obvious. The logic that I use in not posting a Paramount into a Colnago thread is the same logic used in not posting a new Trek into an old Trek thread. Thread A gets Bike A put into it. Thread B is for Bike B, etc. This is not being uptight or restrictive, this is ensuring the original intent of the thread. I kindly pointed it out to LeoGrand, and added in some fun about getting a C&V Trek, and joining in the posting fun. I could go into further reasons for the FYI message, but the main point here is to not have this thread or other threads devolve into, essentially, "show any bike you have in this (or any) thread."

There are main road, hybrid, and commuter sub-forums that are perfectly accommodating of this type of bike (albeit it is not photographed in whole at all, let alone in anyway that lets us see any meaningful part of the frame/bike, though the photos are taken very nicely). There is no restriction there. He is free to post his non-C&V bike (it's brand new) in a non-C&V sub-forum as that is where it belongs and will be appreciated. I knew the second I posted, like the sun rising every morning, that I would have people immediately jump in and tell me that I was being noninclusive somehow, which of course is untrue.

If (some of) you would like, I would be happy to post all my non-vintage-Trek bikes into this "Show your Trek" thread. After all, it doesn't matter since they're all bicycles. This is of course not sound reasoning, and I won't do it. In every thread, we work to keep things "on topic" and my post was in that vein. We kindly police ourselves, and I was no different. It matters not to me if someone has a new bike or not. I have/have had quite new bikes in addition to C&V bikes at the same time, and I post and discuss them where appropriate. We can talk about and be gracious on where, say, a non-new Trek (per this thread) becomes C&V, but it should be obvious to anyone that a 2020 model can only be described as "new."

Now, if anyone has an idea where a 25.5" 1982 Trek 950 frame, in white and blue, is, I'd love to know so that I could add it to the previous entries here. A 750 would be great, too.

What can happen when someone first discovers BikeForums.net for themselves- they search 'Trek' and find the 'Show your Trek' thread, and miss the 'classic-vintage' subforum indication in smaller text at the head of the page. This probably also varies with choice of browser.

For those of us who make BF:C&V our home page, we sort of forget that C&V is not the default choice, particularly if you come to this page via different means. Or at least I do, anyway.

LeoGrand, it looks like you have a very capable machine, unequivocally of its time. But I can't say anything more than that, because your bike is speaking a different language than I do. I know some folks in other subforums will be able to engage more with the details on your bike.

But please keep browsing the C&V subforum too, particularly the TREK thread. You'll see the cool bikes that ratcheted the company forward during its formative years. You'll see some of the great rides people take them on, too. You'll even read extraordinarily insightful posts by people who were actually building these bicycles by hand: torch, file, steel and Imron.

Ride the heck out of it, and enjoy the journey-

^^^^^ Actually, no, it's not a big-bad deal. It was an innocuous mistake, and maybe not everyone recognized it as such. Yes, we do like our old bike porn, and like to joke about how cringing it is to see a threadless stem, or a "hunk o'black carbon' frame, or the like. But it's in jest. Let's hope no one takes the "go vintage or go home" thing too seriously.

Ah man, it was ok to leave them up! I wasn't inferring that the images be banished to the Gorge of Eternal Peril. What's done is done. So now we have a future classic hybrid. That's the spirit. I wondered if it was a simple missing of the sub-forum categorization. It's a bit of a zoo. Plus, if you want to post a Trek, this thread keeps near the top 1-3 pages constantly, so it's easy to find. The road forum is roiling madness and who knows where a Trek-specific thread is. At least "Hot or Not" is always on the front page.

I had fun with this. Mostly stuff fit for something besides a hi-ten frame (hey, it's Ishiwata double butted!).
Sugino May set up 50/34, Sunshine gyro master hubs, Cyclone front/rear derailleurs, Gran-Come levers and center pulls, Suntour barcons, SR bar/stem, and some of our favorite cable stops - Nitto small rear, and Nitto/Blue Lug front.

And who can forget the Brooks.

Thanks guys!

I see nothing wrong with yours @Digger Goreman.

@jlaw - I believe a 77, I'll have to check tomorrow. It's a beautiful green, it's just rather fragile. Flakes off easily. I'll have to grab more pictures when I finish those handlebars (what a slacker...).

The thread you found may very well be the bike that I purchased. I believe he picked some components from it, replaced with lesser Suntour and sold to me. I brought back up to catalog spec + (in my opinion). I never did do a build thread. Maybe that will give me motivation to really "finish" it.

It really speaks to the basic design beauty and utility of bicycles and Treks: something goes wrong... buy/graft another piece and keep on rolling!
