1981 Trek 710
Hello everyone. I've been lurking round these parts for a while using the info for my Trek 330 commuter bike
this is how i've got my 330 set up right now.
but the time has come to upgrade to a nicer bike. I want to get into more touring/randonneuring.
I really love old treks and I found this one on Chicago craigslist thinking I would be able to turn it into a rando bike.
Its a 1981 Trek 710
I'm wondering if it will have clearance for SKS fenders with 28c tires, and if you think the bike is worth the investment.

He's willing to go down to $550 so far, but he wants to use a LBS to pack and ship the bike at a cost of $125. which stings a little.

If it fits and is in stellar condition, I'd bite. I'm a sucker for vintage Treks.
I have a 1980 710 with 600 drivetrain and Dura Ace brakes. Perfect rando bike! You are going to love that thing. Good luck, that bike is beautiful.
