TREK 600 Series

This project started as a trashed bike lingering at a local shop. Many of the parts had been cannibalized for other projects. After stripping the frame and brazing on down tube shifter bosses it was repainted with PPG epoxy primer, PPG Omni plus Brilliant white base coat and Platinum Ice Pearl paint. Custom Velocals decals were added and then clear coated with 5 coats of PPG Deltron 3000 2 part clear. All parts were rebuilt and hand polished to a brilliant or mirror finish.

60 cm 1984 Reynolds 531 TREK 610 frame hand built in Waterloo Wisconsin. The down tube bosses were added to this frame for this rebuild

More Info:
This Trek 600 series bike was originally out fitted with early Shimano 600 components. My goal was to update this classic bike with more modern and safer components. The updated 600 tricolor group fit perfectly and runs as smooth as the day it was made. I now understand why these bikes are so coveted by collectors. it is amazingly smooth and stable at speed.
