The frame is Reynolds 531C, butted tubing throughout with a full set of
touring braze-ons (for front and rear panniers, fenders, 3 water
bottles, etc.). The size is 19.75and the frame color is burgundy with
blue cable housings. The bike has had one owner, was ridden only a few
hundred miles, was kept inside, and is in very good condition.
This is a classic, high-quality, light-weight road bike optimized for
touring. The steel frame and relaxed frame geometry absorb road shock
and provide a comfortable ride whether fully loaded for touring or on
long day rides.
The frame was built in 1984 at Treks U.S. factory. The model number is 720 and the serial number is 146009.
