    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Nice Voyageur on C-List

    Not mine or anyone I know, just thought someone here may be interested as it looks like a sharp ride. (the price doesn't seem to bad either!)

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Cool bike. Most I've seen are black. Then maybe fully chromed. I've seen the red and light blue metallic even less.

    Nice, I am in the midst of totally overhauling mine. Garage sale find, big frame. I love the ride.

    It was completely stock down to the bar-tape. Note reversed rear brake. Not sure what the story is with that (easier rear rack setup?) but I look forward to going the faux-constructeur route like someone else around here



    I have never seen a blue one!

    Hard to tell what condition that Voyager is in from pics, but it appears to be in great shape. The price their asking is dirt cheap! It appears to be either a 55, 56 or 57mm frame. It's probably already gone. But those Voyagers were one of the best touring bikes made back then, and is probably still one of the best on the road today. There was some bikes that Schwinn made and got it right, that was one of them.

    FWIW, that looks like a 80-81 Voyageur 11.8, which was not the touring bike it became in later iterations. More like a sports-tourer. It has big clearances, no braze-ons, single eyelets on each dropout. I think the wheelbase got longer on later models too. It rides like a yacht.

    Still a great bike, but I wouldn't consider $200 a great deal for one.

    I had a blue one too. Sold it to a riding buddy. It's a beautiful color.

    FWIW, there's a 24.5" 11.8 on this morning's CL listings in Kansas City for $100.

    I believe the 11.8 model had a chromed frmae painted over, like the Voyaguer II models earlier. The 11.8 stay tips and fork tips are chromed identical to my 1975 Voyageur II.
