Not a Trek. Seat lug is not a Trek. The crank and RD are 600, first generation 600. What ever it is, it should be pretty nice under the spray paint. Probably mid to high end.

I am 6' with a 34" inseam. I ride anywhere from 55 cm to 59cm. 58cm top tube with a 100mm stem works best for me. What is your inseam? 62 or 63cm bike seem big for your height.
