    My new Trek 660

    http://picasaweb.google.com/11111394...71305/Trek660#

    I just got this on ebay for pretty cheap. The paint is pretty rough, so a new paint job is planned. My question is, will it be bad to not use period correct decals? I can get the same exact decals from velo cal, but I really like the older style where the only one is a wrap decal on the seat tube. I'm not going a full restoration, as I'm thinking of putting a RX100 group on from the early 90s. This will be my first bike with downtube shifters!

    That looks like a great project...I wouldn't worry about period correct decals...Use whatever you want...

    BTW, I love the RX100 group...it's bullet proof...

    You'll enjoy that frame when restoration is completed. Post pictures when done.

    whatever scheme you want. I prefer the old panels as well, much more classic looking. iiwm, I'd match the color and decal of the older model

    What you have there is one of Trek's best. I need another bike like a hole in the head but if I came across one of those in my size I'd buy it in a heart beat.

    Reynolds 531, silver brazed, good geometry, lovely fork, I could go on.....

    As good as anything out there built at that time and better than most. Doesn't have the "panache" of a similar vintage Colnago, De Rosa, etc. but folks must be realizing how good they are as the prices seem to be rising daily.

    Great score!

    I would recommend everybody to get the Red Zinger/Coors Classic video collection. There is a women's team riding steel Treks. They look very cool.
