It is possible that the bike has a Cinelli bottom bracket shell, although it looks like a Trek one to me. The tubing is also described as 501, even though the sticker says 531.

All that aside, these old Trek tourers ride very nicely, long and low, and some of them even appear to be well-made, like my '81 728.
