re some pics of my rebuilt and "enlightened" mid-eighties Trek 1000.
I was given this bike by my best friend who received a new Fuji
roadie as a gift and no longer needed this one. It is a really fun
bike to ride, very smooth, comfortable and quick once I get going.
The front chainring is a 52 biopace, rear is 18. The bike cruises
but I have to avoid long or steep hills. I'll probably change the
front chainring to a 48 tooth soon, and I would also like to paint
the frame sunflour yellow, if I can find someone who'll do it affordably.
I converted the original threaded fork and stem to a threadless
system. All together it cost about 150 bucks to convert this into
what it is now. It weighs about 19lbs or so.
