Trek restro project

I found this older (I think itís a 1992 by color) trek on letgo for $25. I used vinegar spa treatment and reused as many OG parts as possible. Then I ran it through the parts bin to fill the gaps. The result is a lugged rat-rando that i have nice 35c ties and fenders all lined up for my rain riding. Unfortunately, the minute i order the tires someone answers the for sale add😂

That looks nice! I am always on the lookout for a lugged Trek. Particularly one made in Wisconsin. My problem is that it would have to be in my price range. Are you selling it or why did someone call about and ad?

This will look great with fenders. What kind are you getting? Planet Bike, Velo Orange, Honjo, SKS?? Other?

Keep the pictures coming.

I was fortunate enough to be able to do another one this weekend. This 930 is now certified for resale
