Oh boy. If we were in the market for a mountain bike, this might be pretty high on top of the wish list.

And no, the concept isn’t new.

Trek Track with Reynolds 753. Wait, what?!

Surely this must be rarer than rocking horse manure, though sadly, the fork looks bent.

Own a piece of USA cycling history, or just have the coolest fixie on the planet.
This USA team bike belonged to Kelly Kittredge and was raced around 1984-1985. Looks like she placed 38th in the World Championships, but I haven’t found out much else about her.
This bike is 100% ride-able. Beware, there is no freewheel and no brakes, it’s a true track bike.
Here are some specs:
Hand built Trek 170 frame and fork made from Reynolds 753, Brooks saddle, DuraAce cranks, Cinelli stem and bars (65-40 Criterium), SunTour Superbre Pro Hubs, SunTour wheels with flat spokes, Sew-up tires, (hold air, but very old – will need new tires to ride), Campagnolo seat post, Shimano 46 tooth front and 15 rear, Campagnolo pedals and toe clips with Alfredo Binda straps.
There are no dents or bends anywhere but some scratches and corrosion for a bike this old.
Please write if you have any questions.
I ship only to the continental USA and expect shipping to be $100.00 Local Pickup is ok!
Measurements:
Top of top tube to floor – 79cm
Seat tube – 53cm
Top tube length – 53.3cm
Down tube – 62cm
Crank Arms -175mm
Stem 10cm

1984 Trek 660 Road Bike, 57cm

Not normally Trek fans – we’re unabashedly Europhilic as this blog can attest – but this seems nice.

1984 Trek 660 Road Bike, 57cm, Upgraded, Excellent – $550

Here is some real, vintage American muscle — made right here in the U.S. of A and hung with top-notch components. Overall this bike is in excellent condition, and I just thoroughly cleaned, rebuilt and upgraded the entire machine. This bike has a very smooth and solid ride. It purrs along at a decent clip, but it’s ready to jump anytime you put the hammer down. At speed it handles like it’s on rails.

Details:

– High quality Reynolds 531 cs lugged steel frame hand brazed in Waterloo, Wisconsin; 57cm (22.5″)

– Full Campagnolo Nuovo Record drive train

– Maillard 700 Professional hubs (these are Campy smooth) laced to Matrix rims (true)

– Modolo brakes with Dia Compe Aero Gran Compe levers

– Upgrades: New Stronglight headset, Cinelli stem/handlebars, Campy fluted seatpost, Campy Record pedals, Avocet Racing II saddle

– New: Panaracer Pasela tires, cables, chain, handlebar tape, MKS toe clips and Christophe leather straps
