    1973 World Voyageur.jpg1973 World Voyageur As found1.jpg



    This is one I recently pulled out of the woods, it had been sitting there for years. Unfortunately, most of the original components were either gone or rotted away. So I took a different approach making it a bin build. It really needs barcons, but I was trying to meet a price point for the el cheapo thread. I will probably rebuild it later.1973 World Voyageur El Cheapo After1.jpg1973 World Voyageur El Cheapo After2.jpg1973 World Voyageur El Cheapo After3.jpg

    This 23" Kool Orange World Voyageur followed me home today. Looks like a March build date, number 345 off the line if I understand correctly.

    Does anybody have a good idea of how World Voyageurs were made?

    Reviving an old thread.

    I picked up one of these about a year ago for $50 off CraigsList. Looks like a November 73 build. All original when I got it except for front tire and missing toe clips. I cleaned it up, packed the bearings, put a set of Kendas and a cheap saddle on it. She rides like a dream. I usually keep it hung on the wall but occasionally take it for a spin. First two pics are the day I got it home, last pic is after a quick 20 miles.

    According to an article in the October 1972 Schwinn Reporter (dealer newsletter), in the first 9 months of 1972 Schwinn had sold just over 1 million bicycles, including 36,279 World Travelers and Voyageurs. Total sales for that year ended up at over 1.428 million, so if the proportion of Traveler/Voyageur sales remained the same for the remaining 3 months the total Traveler/Voyageur sales for '72 would be just under 52,000. Of course most of those would have been the $113.95 World Traveler vs. the $275 World Voyageur.
