1988 Schwinn Circuit. Bike-Boom-Puegeot. First "real bike" Trek 720 Hybrid in gross disrepair.
Got Me a Minty 1980 Voyageur...
No chrome, sorry, I know that's what you came in here wanting. I got a pretty darn good deal on this thing, its my size (well at the big end of it) and I've been needing a big touring-y bike to outfit with fenders and racks and all sorts of fun stuff.
I also must confess, I'm the hackiest of bike wrenches. Until last year, I couldn't even change a bike tire. I've been waiting for a great project to work on to overhaul, fortunately this one is starting off in great shape. I'll be slowly building up the tools I don't yet have.
Here's some teaser photos, I'll put some better quality ones up when I have something better than my phone camera.
A couple quick questions:
Will it be possible to get a smaller small ring for alpine gearing (Sugino Super Maxy)? Is the odd seatpost sizing a problem?
The Schwinn tires are still holding air, but the gumwall is definitely crumbling. Hoods are bubbling/decaying. Still has the original Schwinn labeled cabling.

Is the seat post broken? If not why replace it? It will tough to get a smaller chain ring. If you really need lower gears I would suggest getting a cheap, used newer mountain bike and us the triple and derailluers of it on you bike. Something with Shimano LX components would serve you well. Roger
