I have an old (2000-ish) Trek 4500 that has been neglected to the point where I don't even want to list it for sale lol I don't want to just throw it out and am looking for a project. Wheels and frame are in good shape but it has a broken RD, crappy brakes, and the fork is trash. Anyone here ever done anything with this frame or anything similar? Not looking for anything specific just something fun to piece together with some used parts from FB, Ebay, Pinkbike etc.. What are my best options with this frame? Im open to pretty much anything DJ, Rigid, Single Speed, scrap it

I use a old Trek 26” when we go camping at the beach.Converted to single speed, 235 beach cruiser tires. Leave it outside at camp ground , if someone steals it, oh well, if it falls off the back of trailer, oh well. I actually do like it and might buy a lock for it this year.

Maybe a jib/street bike. Put some DJ parts on it, or maybe just commute with it.
