Nope. The clamp just goes above the little bump. They come in all different shapes. Many bikes don't have them at all, as well.

I'm not an SIS person, but I think I've only seen braze-on or stem...

You mean like a SunTour or Shimano clamp-on shifter mounts? They are all over the place. I'm sure people here have some. I think I have a set of Shimano clamp on shifters.

Probably just late '83 production. Serial numbers would be stamped before paint and decals were applied. If they were out of '83 decals at that step or the frame was held over in inventory beyond the...

Neat. That gravel road practically looks wide enough to be a freeway. I like the bike stand, too. :)

Don't beat yourself up too much. A recent thread on Classic Rendezvous didn't give Photobucket much love. If you haven't invested too much into it yet, I'd look for an alternative: Flickr, Ipernity,...

Nice looking 660... My guess is that you might have to go with SKS Race Blades or something similar. There probably isn't a ton of room to spare.

Down in the Sarasota area for vacation, we decided it might be cool to find some cheap bikes to get around on instead of renting crappy "beach cruisers". I found a Trek 510, which I will ship back...

I have an 84-ish 520. The swap was nothing more than installing a set of 700c wheels. I suppose there might be some variability in the location of the posts (one would expect they had some sort of...

Here's my Trek frankenbike. I use it as my commuter. From the color scheme and the serial number I suspect it's an '84 660. (I thought it was a 770 when I bought it.) I bought the frame from...
