Hi Everyone.

Here is another bike I really wanted as a kid but could not afford. I just found it on Craigslist in Indiana and had it shipped to me in Canada. I have begun the restoration this weekend!

The frame and fork are in impossibly fantastic cosmetic condition considering that the drivetrain and brakeset / shifters are totally worn. I will be rebuilding it totally stock with new condition 800xrays and NOS Diacompe pc7s.

I have totally disassembled and buffed / waxed the frame..

I am making one mint Judy XC out of the one that came on the bike, one I got on Ebay (for $25!) and some AWESOME new decals from Gil M!

I even have NOS tioga Psychos for it!

yummie yummie.

The Y-series is the one Trek I've always wanted to own.
Back when I was still a teenager I used to spend my afternoons at my LBS staring at one all the time. I couldn't decide if I wanted the Y or the Cannondale Super V. Unfortunately I couldn't afford either BITD.

Keep up the good work.

Frame and fork colour go so well together, it's uncanny.
