Nice,

I had a 91 8500 which I loved to bits, lasted about 10 years before the chainstay cracked from too much chain suck!

Didn't realise Trek did a 8700 Pro...maybe this is a US model...think in the UK the 8700 came with Suntour XC Expert...the model up from there the 8900 came with XT, some trick components and a set of original rock shox...have a review of the 8700 somewhere if you're interested, and a 1991 Trek catalogue to boot :)

Cheers

Rich

I had one of these BITD, superb, light and rode well, took me months of saving my paper round wages to afford it mind

Those rims and tyres look barely marked. Has it been ridden much?

I'm a sucker for a bike with carbon main tubes!

Don't think any of the parts pictured are original.

And to answer a few questions....JustKev none of its original except fork and headset. My plans are to build a XTR group/Syncros build. I am trying to source out a Trek Fork (DDS3 or Trek Mogul).

Check out my other thread....I have some other builds going on as well but this one is my baby (well excluding my actual 6 month old baby girl!).

Enjoy!
