    I need affirmation...

    Schwinn Voyageur 11.8, looks to be in real primo condition.

    Is it worth a $50 investment as a flip bike?

    Yes and I am willing to go halfsies to help mitigate your investment risk! Also e-bay is your best bet for resale. Move quick, there is an on ramp to 309N right near my house.....

    If you want it get it, I won't fight a fellow BF'er over a bike. There's just too many bikes for that kind of stuff.

    I was only kidding about the trip North. That said, I do think it is good flip material. I have seen the black version of the Voyageur go on ebay for close too and sometimes over $200 depending. Good Luck!

    I live just off of 309... and could really use an 11.8!!!! especially if it is 56-57 cm

    I'll let you flip it to me for a modest profit!

    Heh, heh... I just got home with it. I haven't measured yet but depending on how you measure it just might be a 57.

    The bike is in beautiful shape considering... birthdate is 0730, so it's an '80, right? Needs a rear tube and the hoods are all cracked & wonky. Anyone have a line on a cheap pair of hoods? They're Dia-Compe drilled levers.

    I'm anxious to get cracking on it tomorrow.

    bbbbay... Dia-Compe hoods

    Congrats! That's a very good price. Careful, 11.8s can be addicting enough you'll want to keep it.

    Somehow I missed this ad. Was it on Philly CL, or another PA subsection? I don't even know why I bother to watch Philly CL...just to end up seeing the deals appear in fender1's posts!

    If it's a 59 or 60cm c-c, you may have another interested buyer for local pick-up!

    EDIT: Nevermind, looks like the '80 was only offered in 21", 23" and 25", no in-between.

    It was in the Lehigh Valley subsection. Listed as "Schwinn ~ Excellent Condition" $50. there were three real fuzzy low-res photos. I had to inquire what it was.

    Photos forthcoming.

    Yeah, Schwinn measures c-t so the 23" is 57cm c-c and the 25" is 62cm c-c. You need a 24" in Schwinn vernacular.

    BTW Oddly enough, both the 23" and 25" have 57cm c-c top tubes.

    Stacey and I spent some time last night in PM trying to talk each other into this one...

    I kept trying to convince myself it was too big for me...

    I am glad it got into C&V hands!

    Not to be argumentative, but on my tape 23" is about 58.4cm.

    Ahhhhh.... those folks in the Lehigh Valley know how to treat a bike! If that bike were close to Philly, it would be a single speed/Fixed gear by now and have been powder coated flat black regardless of the paint condition!

    I'm guessing you're now thinking of keeping this one?
