...it never makes fiscal sense to seek out and rework your bike with the original components unless you are a hobbyist and plan on keeping it as a restoration. Then you can write it off as a labor of love. For a resale, it's just not a good idea. I don't know the market value for Treks, because not a lot of the best ones show up for resale in my area. They seem to fly under the radar here in NorCal where I live...I see a lot more of the mid level ones on the local Craigslist.

So they don't seem to get top dollar asking prices. Might be because there are so many Italian bikes from the same era bouncing around in the used bike market here.
