Obviously, there's been a big influx of these 1987 WTB/Trek Team bikes lately so ECS asked to start a thread and with CCMDoc to ShawnW.'s October 1987 Mountain Bike Action magazine, I've scanned some photos of them so we can all build identical bikes! :p Those that have them or have information regarding them, post them up.

Mine is not ready for prime time. Still need to sort brakes, the front derailleur mount, and add a stubby to my fork but otherwise, I should have the other parts. I'll add a picture when done...in about a million years from now in Bike Completion Time.

VRC has gone all Trek on us?

Sigh...

This is like bringing Hot Dogs to a BBQ competition.

Slather it with sauce but it's still a Hot Dog.

All you need is an Al Trek frame...and Speedmasters, a Potts stem. Oh and a Type 2 fork. No problem. Throw in a Cunningham post and some WTB hubs and you have a cheap replica.

Their were less than 20 of these made, and they were all called WTB Treks. They were custom built 1 at a time. They either went to a "Team Member" or a "Customer". It's as simple as that.

G, thanks for the scan...bikes with toe clips on the cover, yay.


As far as the Trek frames go, and assuming even the "Team" bikes had factory serial numbers, I'd be curious to see if there's any logic to them.
My plain old red frame is 293522, and the white/blue one is 290709...anyone else care to share?
