Hi compatriot :)
Nice entry!
What makes you think that Trek is from 1986? It looks slightly younger to me; do you mean 1996, perhaps?

Because in the documentation I did find only in that year this color scheme 'Antelope Slate metallic with red decals'. And because the frame numbers starts with a letter I indicating the 17.5 inch frame size as was common at that time.

sorry ... the gold bell is definately not an item available in 1986, as stated previously I believe the bicycle may be a child of the late 90's.... much later, maybe even noughties.

I have to agree - the headtube badge looks original and the time line places it as late 90’s

Thanks, that helps. So maybe end 90's?

Indeed, the bell is added by myself. It is 2019... :D
