1998 Trek SubCulture SS
Looked for one of these for a while - Getting a rebuild now
March 29, 2012 - finally got around to cleaning her up in time for the Spring Fling.
DK seat, ODI bar ends, Wellgo platforms, Black chain.
I built a close approximation of the OG rear wheel with a Kin Lin steady class Araya 7X clone and a Schwinn XS sealed hub.
I couldn't get all the chrome to shine as someone sanded parts of it to dull -would take serious buffing or re-chrome.
Altogether, looks great, shines up, is light, rides nice, and fits well since it's a long bike.
I actually bought a mint one of these on Ebay two years ago for a ridiculous good price, but the seller couldn't let it go.
Well, I finally got another one -local on Craigslist. It needs more work but in good condition and all there.
