1982 Trek 613

Built from a bare frame. 613's were originally equipped with Suntour components. I stripped the frame to bare metal and painted it in a 1982 Trek paint scheme. The fork was upgraded to one from an earlier high end Trek. Currently setup with cyclocross tires and used as a gravel bike. This used frame was built using components that would have been a logical upgrade in the 1980s.

Reynolds 531/Ishiwata stays, adjustable forged drop-outs, 58cm

Fork/Headset:
Tange crown with drilled reinforcement tangs, Reynolds 531 blades/Velo Orange sealed

Shimano 6 speed/14-34/50-40-28

I'm kickstandman, whom you know per the net; Ive thought about getting a Trek because they've sold a lot and they are available. I've seen 613s, perhaps that is what I would look for or whatever had 531.

The 613 is a fine, versatile frame with a nice feel to it. The frame weight is comparable to my Columbus SL frames. When the wheels are changed from 27 to 700, there is room for fatter tires and fenders. With road tires it makes a good sport or touring bike. Trek knew what they were doing.
