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.....

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.
Although I saw the CL listing, WE NEED PICS!!!!
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.

I ran into the same sort of deal last night. Peugeot bike $125. Turns out to be 531 frame and forks in amazing condition, hehe. PICS!! We need pics!,,,,BD
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!
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!
