    1985 Schwinn Voyageur SP 58cm or 23"

    I have come to the conclusion that my Voyageur SP is a size too big. It has ben a great bike but time to move it on. Everything has been upgraded and works great. There are a few scratches to the paint but overall everything is in good shape. Frame measures 58cm or 23" ctt with a 33" stand over. Top tube measures 56cm or 22" ctc. Part list includes:

    - Lugged Columbus (SP/SL) Frame
    - Original sealed headset
    - Nitto dirtdrop stem
    - WTB dirt drop bars (have some scratches on badge but original WTB!)
    - Dia Compe Levers with Gum hoods
    - NGC982 canti brakes with elliptical mounting (switch from 27" to 700c was easy and allignment is great)
    - Suntour bar ends
    - Suntour XC pro FD and RD (Fd has some paint chipping off but works great, Rear is in great shape)
    - Suntour XC pro triple front crank
    - Suntour Superbe press bearing BB with new bearings
    - Suntour Superbe press bearing pedals
    - Shimano Dura Ace seatpost
    - Fujita Saddle and saddle bag not included
    - New SKS fenders
    - Sansin Gyro master hubs laced to Matrix Titan 700c anodized rims (eyelets have some corrosion but solid)
    - Also included is a Sanyo generator and light which I think works but needs a new light bulb
    - Blackburn rear rack

    SOLD


    ** I also have a more traditional bar/stem combo if you prefer. They are SR and in good shape. I wouldn't mind keeping the dirt drop and bars anyway.

    Thanks for looking and PM for shipping quotes or paypal info.

    Better pics added. I would also trade frames for a +- 22" frame of similar quality (trek 720, Miyata 1000, etc.)

    That is a spectacular bike-

    It looks like you've taken GREAT care and thought into putting that bike together- among the very best in components on there.



    Didn't you have both an 85 720 AND the 85 VSP?

    Thanks! Yes I did have an 85 720 for a bit but it was in very good shape and all original so I ended up selling it for a pretty good profit instead of switching out components. I built up a 26" tourer on the cheap for a while and then found this one a couple years ago. This one was already kind of pieced together so I didnt feel so bad switching things out, plus I really like the color scheme on this one compared to the 720.

    I have a 21" Miyata 1000 that's a tad too small. Take a look here and let me know if you'd like to do a frame, not whole bike, trade. Cheers.

    THanks but that would probably be too small. Plus I just bought another frame set that I think will work.

    I personally would appreciate it if sold prices could be left listed in ads to serve as an indication of fair market value for future sellers, thanks!

    Asking price was $650 IIRC. Frame and fork for $300. Whether that's what was arrived on for the sale is between the buyer and seller.

    I sold the frame/fork/headset for $375 + shipping on ebay. Same day I listed it, actually about 4 hours after.
