I don't know if this is the sort of thing you'd want to post on
current classics. It would have been a current classic, were it
not for an unfortunate event...
bought an '86 Trek 400 Reynolds 531 frame with a bit of rust. Sanded
to bare metal and painted with Eastwood Rust Encapsulator, which
I thought looked pretty good, so I clearcoated it. Built up to a
brevet bike with spare parts and rode to work one week and then
rode one brevet. After another week of riding, someone tried to
cut across my path but ran straight into me instead -- the bike
was totalled (I was lucky and only broke a cheekbone and a tooth).
Most of the spare parts went to the Gunnar that replaced it. But
while I was waiting for the Gunnar, I remembered a friend had said
he had a Trek 400 in the basement, and he kindly gave it to me.
Pictures to follow in separate post.
