I have been into bicycling and motorcycling for the better part of 3 and 4 decades. I recently sold my recumbent tadpole trike and went in search of a nice touring bike that I could convert into something that Grant and the folks at Rivendell would do. I found a like new Schwinn Voyageur from the mid to late 80s. I haven't received it yet, but I would like to post up some pics in the future. I will probably do a moustache bar or the ambo bar with barends and a different stem. I found answers to bikes here in my quest for info on different bikes I was looking at. I remembered a friend who had bought the Voyageur new and hadn't ridden it much with later bike acquisitions. I contacted him and he agreed to sell it to me. If it is as good as shape as it was when I last saw it a couple of years ago, it will be like buying a new 25 year old bike.
