Gallery - Trek 730, Tom Adams
Here are pictures of a repainted 1979 Trek 730 owned
and photographed by Tom Adams.
Tom writes: ". . . It's a full 531 dougle butted
bike, and has sport racing geometry, with the emphasis on racing. It's
one of the very early ones, as the head tube had holes in it for head
badge rivets, and very early in the process Trek went to glued-on head
badges. I didn't do an exact restoration, but an interpretation of what
Trek should have done! ." (The TREK lettering on the seat tube
is accurate but the white headtube paint and white downtube bands were
not on the bike originally. The lug pinstriping also was not used by
Trek at the factory.)
Tom continues: "There are no reinforcing tangs
inside the fork blades, just a 1/2 inch point/tab that's integral with
the fork crown. The crown is semi sloping, with cast in hollows on the
underside around the fork blade sockets."
The frame before the refurbishment is shown in the last photo. Click
