1980 Schwinn Voyageur 11.8 Chrome
Hey guys, I purchased a 1980 Voyageur chrome model today, 23" frame. It's all original, but needs a good cleaning and to replace tires, tubes, lines, bar tape. I paid $150. The problem is it has a small (1/2 dime) size ding in the top tube in a very conspicuous spot.
Saw it today and had to scoop it up. Hasn't been ridden in 15 years according to the owner.
I was thinking to clean it up, replace worn items and "flip" since it's a desirable bike. Wondering if it will be worth it to invest my time and $$ into fixing it up, OR should I simply clean it up and sell frame and components as a group and list it for less $.
Option 3, to hell with it, keep it myself...
