gotta show of my new trek

been searching awhile for a vintage trek, finally found a 560. guy i bought it off of has around 300 bikes, campy record and nuovo record parts new in the boxes. tons of frames. hes got a colnago super frame and fork thats never had parts on it. when my cash flow gets back up hes got a white and blue fade guerciotti that im gonna pick up. anyways here it is, im at work and all i have is my cell phone, i will get better pics later. all original 105. not sure what im gonna do about the saddle, and i dont really care for the tires, but they are new. i have the original levers but i like non-aero.

Good to hear there are people out there with more bikes than me. Nice pickup. Vintage Treks are oh so nice, and ones higher up the product line, like this 560, are even nicer!

Hello Sloar, congratulations, I'm glad you found the Trek you were looking for. By the way, I'm looking for a Raleigh Super Course, let me know if this guy had any. Beautiful 560 you got there, great color.

Thank you guys, I'm looking for either 23.5" or 25.5". I fit very well on a 24.5" frame but I just found out SC's were not built on this size.
