1986 Trek Elance

They certainly used to make pretty bikes!!

I purchased this bike the other day with the intention of stripping it down to the frame and building it back up with a modern 9 speed drivetrain, converting it to 650b wheels, 41mm Compass Hetre tires, dynamo hub and lighting and whatever else strikes my fancy between now and next spring. I do love having something available to putter with on rainy days.
