Some news, I hope good. I just bought what looks to be a pretty much all original 1973 Schwinn World Voyageur in what appears to be damned good condition on eBay. Not cheap, but far less expensive than a Rivendell. I am going to ride it the way it is a time or two, but will probably then change out the power train and brakes to 9-speed triple Shimano Ultegra's (I have some of these).

Any opinions and advice welcomed.
Thanks in advance, Dick
