Trek 720 Custom, made with Reynolds butted 531

Trek 720 Custom, made with Reynolds butted 531 frame tubes and fork. Dark Cherry red, approximately 2500 miles. I was a Bike Nash Bar certified installer back in the 80’s & 90’s. A customer - friend would come & ask me to build a bike; we would order a frame after carefully measuring customer to builder’s requests. This bike has a 22-1/2”(57.2?) Seat tube, 21-3/4”(57.8?) Top tube CL to CL & 41-1/2”(105.4?) Wheel Base. I built about 20 customs over 20+ years. This was one of the last that I built around 1990 (?). He was a longtime friend but we built it too late in life & it never got ridden very much. He passed away recently & his wife has asked me to sell this & two other bikes. This is a beautiful machine. But dirty with 20 years of basement dust & cob webs. Clean it up & ride the Ferrari of the past! Call 608 752-5925 NO Tex, Ask for Bob Jr.
I've been told I need to list a price. $950.00 OBO.
Call & make me an offer & I'll relay it to her. You may get pleasantly surprised or a no thank you?

I think you'll get more traffic in the Classic & Vintage For Sale forum. Good luck.
