So I saw a Trek 470 for sale

Hi,
it had a Shimano 600 rear der. I am going to guess and say it's mid 80's.
Tange cromo frame. Looks very nice, black frame, lugged, drilled brake levers.
It's like $60. I'm not sure I can ride road gearing, but it haunts my imagination.
Prob a dumb idea.

If the decals look handpainted, it was built in a barn in Wisconsin and is worth a lot more than $60 even if it wasn't.

Yes,
it's a road bike. Not sure if the decals are hand painted.
Downtube shifters make me think 80's, of course that's no guarantee. Something about the bike whispers 'Ride me'.

Late,

Trek 470 was a 1985 model but didn't appear in the 1985 brochures.
It also isn't in the 85 or 86 brochures. I think it was only 85.
Very nice riding bikes (I have an 85 trek).
I'd say a good idea, but be careful you might just like road gearing and bikes!

Marty
