Trek Tourer CL find

After several CL misses, I picked up a project bike today. Trek tourer, but not a lot of information beyond that, so far.
Bike has no model number decals or headbadge. I tried to read the serial # on the bottom bracked (47N6084) I think. I don't see this matching up with the classic trek information. The details I have so far: FD - Suntour Cyclone MII; RD - Suntour VX; Suntour brakes, levers say superbe; Sugino crank arms; Triple chainring (50/45/26); Bar-end shifters.

The fork blades have 022 written on them, and there is what looks like someone's idea of something cool, KAMAKAZI in letters down the seat tube. Seat stays have Trek logo.

Looks like a good score to me! Ishiwata 022 tubing is good stuff, the components sound pretty good too!
Check out "Vintage Trek" Vintage Trek - Other Vintage Lightweight Bicycle Resources, bike , to find out what year and model you have (serial # on the bottom bracket).

Cheers,
Chris

That's a really cool looking bike- it'll clean up REALLY nice.

As for what it is... I'd guess an 81 515.


Just out of curiosity- what are those bars?

The fifth picture shows the wheel askew in the fork. Is that bad installation or a bent fork?

I saw that bike on CL and I couldn't get out there in time to get it that day, was too busy picking up my 520 the same day I saw that rig and got busy with work after that. Glad somebody else from here picked it up. I think I decided it was from 79-81 515 myself. What are the wheels?

I think the handlebars are SR Randonneur bars. Interesting combination of components; Sugino AT crank, Superbe brakes, Cyclone Mk. II F. DR... I wonder if this was pieced together from Parts bin goodies?

Thanks for all the information, guys! Tom- the wheel was quickly put back on (sloppily) for the pics, it does go in true when I pay more attention. Are the components from different production years? Or, mismatched quality series? Obviously, my knowledge here is pretty weak. There are no obvious markings on the wheels. I'll try a closer look tomorrow. I am surprised at the lack of Trek identifiers. Were there years/models with no head badges, or was the original removed at some point?

Current project is getting the barcons removed. Left side came loose okay, right is being stubborn, so I am soaking it with some Blaster.

Oh, and thanks for the frame info. I had no idea what the 022 on the fork stood for. I assume that the frame is the same grade of Ishiwata tubing?

Forgot to ask - will Cane Creek hoods fit the Suntour brakes? I see Niagara has non-aero hoods that may fit. Not sure of any other sources, because those on the bike are toast.

They look like randos to me too. Hard to tell with all that foam grip.

I emailed the seller and he never got back to me. Some of these people don't understand the spam settings with their email. So flyfisherbob, Geo_08 and myself were all trying to get this bike for $75. I think it had been sitting on STL CL for a few weeks before Bob got it.

I was going by the outward 'flare' at the bottom of the drops. The bars on my '83 600 look very similar.

flyfisherbob - it looks as if the head badge was removed, and all of the Decals save the 022 fork sticker. If the frame is indeed a '79 - '81 frame set, then the Crank, F. derailleur and the Brakes post date the frame by about two years.

(Sugino AT - 1983, Cyclone MK. II - 1982-83, Superbe Brakes - 1983-84).

Regardless... looks like a good, solid rig, well equipped. At least she's not equipped with a Helicomatic R. hub!

Looking at what frames were Ishiwata 022 (or with a 022 fork) and the lack of screw holes for the head badge which started around 1980... But it's interesting that you don't see that color a lot past 1980- it's a very "back in the barn" color for Trek.

Was that 520 the red one in St. Charles? I was interested in that one, but came in behind the buyer.
