Gallery - 1985 Trek Model 170
These photos of this Trek frame were provided by Nels
Cone. It is a bit of a mystery frame - the graphics and apparent tubing
type don't quite match the Trek catalogs. It appears to be a custom
order made with Reynolds 753 tubing. Nels was told the main tubes are
753, the stays and fork are Tange chrome-moly.
The graphics are that of an 1985 bike, Even though the
85 catalog lists no bikes made of 753, we have learned that Trek did
make some Model 170s in 85 (which were made of 753). The Model 170 is
listed in the 82, 83 and 84 catalogs.
There is no sticker on the bike that says 753, but the
graphic on the right chainstay says Reynolds. The seat post diameter
is 27.4mm, which is characteristic of 753. Other features are: internal
chainstay rear derailleur cable, eyelets on the dropouts, the word "TREK"
embossed on head-lugs, dropouts, BB shell, and seat cluster. The seat
tube length is in the range of 48 or 49 cm. Chainstay length is 41.5
