First up is a no serial number 1980 TX910
Figured the date because a combo of the glued headbadge and campagnolo dropouts, combo that only existed for about 6 months in 1980. Had half of a Columbus sticker at one point and matches the geometry of a 910, which means it’s SLX. Good for my fatass.
Was abandoned in the basement of a building and @Mister_Uncle_Rudy traded it to me for a bottle of whisky. By trek catalogue it appeared to be bone stock at the time.
I’ve converted it to 650b and running 38mm GK slicks, which measurer closer to 40mm on the VO Diagonale rims.
Tektro long reach with kool stop shoes
OG Apex shakes, dangler and pusher, CX50 46/34, ultegra 11-28 corncob, KMC chain
Picture isn’t up to date, VO fenders that I’ve painted black are back on it, as well as 2cm longer stem and orange tape. And better light wire routing
This winter I’ll be removing cable guides and adding additional housing stops, hour glasses on the fork as well as seatstay, seat tube bottle bosses, and DT under bosses. Maybe bringing in the chain stays a bit to run 650b42
Currently thinking painting f/f & fenders John Deere green with a gold sparkle clear coat. Eventually everything silver will be black with a contemporary gruppo. Baby steps.
Second vintage trek is a Jazz, which I’m counting because it was a trek brand
Is sups, nothing too special. 1x7 trigger shifter
Handful of stock parts still on it, just for tootin around.
