Well, my fellow bicycle crazed lunatics, I have recently come into possession of a very strange Schwinn frame and fork. It is a small frame size, maybe too small for me at 5'8'? But I cannot find it in any of the Schwinn catalogs. I believe it is from 1986-1988 because of the under-the-chainstay mounted U-brake.
It also has an obscenely long wheel base, about two inches longer than my Voyaguer 11.8. It is made of True Temper Chrome-Moly, it does not say whether it is butted, so I think it is straight gauge, it has a 26.6 seatpost. It is fairly light though, and the craftsmanship on it is pretty good.
Here is the tubing sticker
And the nice bottle boss braze on things.
Seat Lug; investment cast, I believe.
The decals say Schwinn Alure, however I was unable to find any such bike in any of the online catalogs. Thanks for your time.
