    Jason;

    Don't know where you are, but I have a Trek from 1980 that I am looking to sell. It's a model 412, no rust, kept in a garage. Would need new tires and a tune up.

    I'm in NJ.

    see if you can find a trek 1500, I very nearly bought one instead of my current ride. I remember they cost a little over $1000 brand new, you can probably get a great deal if you can find a used one.

    Craigslist maybe a better option just because its local. Find out what size frame you need in a road bike. A aluminum frame is probably the least expensive to start out with. Try to get Shimano 105 or better componets and you should be in business. Good luck.
