Re: [BOBishBikesFS] Trekish Bike? not really but Cool none the less!
- Steve and Everyone,
Are you absolutely sure that the frame is not a Trek?
My memory of the exact shape of the lugs Trek used in
their induction brazing process is fuzzy, but these
don't look too far off.
Check out the photo on the auction site. That lug
connecting the head tube to the down tube has quite a
distinctive shape. Is that the right shape for a
Trek? I have no idea. Steve, maybe this is what
clued you in to the fact that the frame is not an old
Trek. If so, I apoligize for doubting your
conclusions. Anyone else have accurate information
about what the old Trek lugs looked like?
Looking forward to getting more info,
Santa Clarita, CA
