Barn Find: Early 80’s Trek Road Bike

WPBlog001 421

1981/1982 Trek 412:  Ishiwata 022 tubing, a nice mix of Japanese componentry for an entry level model, and some French bits, including an original Avocet Condor saddle, Michelin Bib Sport tires, and Rigida rims.  This bike has been living in the depths of a horse barn in Albuquerque, NM for a long time.  I don’t need it and it doesn’t fit me, but I am hoping to connect the frame with someone that can give it a new life– an upright, 3-speed, 26 x 1 3/8″ (590mm/650A) kind of life.
