    Latest find! Schwinn World Voyageur!

    Just walked in the door with my new Schwinn World Voyageur! I'm stoked!















    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

    Very nice! Everything shown in the pics except the saddle and maybe the seatpost (can't really see it to be sure) looks to be factory original. Were the original wheels and pedals included as well?

    These are my three Worlds. Two Voyagers and one Traveler. The Traveler is kind of a lugged frame Continental. You will love the Voyager when you ride it. Roger

    Do you have better pics? or maybe a link to a spec sheet or something? from the pics you posted your bikes look sweet, but want to have a better look, need as much info as I can get on the WV.

    You're on a roll, ILB.

    Last week it was that lovely '65 Super Sport.
    Next week, maybe a Paramount P-13?

    Very nice! I love my 74 Voyageur II - great ride, and also has the 1st gen Dura Ace crankset and RD. I'm also a fan of the chrome lugs on the Schwinn/Panasonic frames.

    Beautiful, you'll love the comfy ride once you get it cleaned up and built up. One of my favorite bikes that I own atm.

    The '74-'76 Voyageur II is basically the same bike as the '73 World Voyageur. The changes between them are mainly cosmetic. They have all of the same components, however some were slightly updated versions on the VII.

    Very sweet, and I'll admit I'm jealous. I've been looking for one in that size (23-1/2?), preferably in Opaque Blue, so I can build up a duplicate of the bike I rode from '73-77 all over the Great Lakes area. Ran Blumel Popular fenders and sew-ups. Yes, sew-ups for touring. I loved them.

    Nice find, ILB.

    I just picked up a '73 Kool Orange World Voyageur this past weekend. I'm taking it into the Co-op to swap parts over from my '86 Voyageur this weekend. I'm so excited; I can't hardly wait.

    More pictures of my Voyagers. They have both been powdercoated. The orange one in 1995 and the yellow one in 2005. If you double click on the pictures they will get bigger. I see I didn't have the decals on the yellow one when I took these pictures. Roger

    I love the Kool Lemon. We didn't get Schwinn's in Canada.
    How did Schwinn measure their frames? C to C or C to T?

    I believe it is C-T

    Anyways, here is mine with stem, handlebars and rear wheel mocked up.

    I'm picking up some brand spankin' new Dia Compe Gran Compe 610 brakes tomorrow, as well as the dia compe mini rack that bolts on to the center pulls.

    As you can see, some of the paint is gone from the top tube. Honestly, I'm actually surprised it's not more badly beaten up as it's lived it's entire life in the merciless Chicago climes.
