Some bike parts have a date code cast or stamped into the piece.
The most likely components to be original are the stem, handlebars, seatpost, and brakes.The Appendix gives dates of initial manufacture for the vast majority of derailleurs made from 1920 to 1999.Other manufacturers of bicycle components have date marks on their pieces.)Most early Treks (1976 through about 1980) were sold as framesets.
The components were added by the local bike shop or by the buyer. Components also could be swapped from an existing ride to the new frameset.As the wear on a vintage bike increases, the greater the likelihood components are not original, either through replacement of worn parts or through component swaps.Swaps can take place early in the life of a bike as the proud new owner upgrades to new or used components of higher quality.This makes dating the components an interesting archeological investigation, but one not necessarily related to the date of the bike. Trek owner Larry Osborn made this observation, and suggested this as a supplementary way of dating a Trek (and other bikes as well).
