    I can confirm the World Voyageur/VII dimensions are the same. The chainstays are 435mm long and there is right around 40mm clearance at the chainstays for 27" tires, maybe a bit more for 700c.

    That one has the small 21" frame. Price isn't bad but unfortunately it is missing the original 1st gen. Dura Ace crankset (a pricey piece by itself), Fujita saddle and KKT toe clips/straps. The rest...

    If it has TA cranks with the sync rings on the drive side (and they are original to the bike) that would make it a '76 or earlier model. If it is a '76 there would be a 4-digit number on the...

    I don't know of any Kuwahara bike labeled as Schwinn, certainly not any within a decade or so of 1968. If you can name such a model, please do so.

    If it still has the original headbadge, there should be a 4-digit number stamped in the badge that would identify the day it was built.

    The Sport Limited was a limited production late 1977 model. The serial number only indicates when the frame was initially built, and many if not most of the Sport Limited bikes used left-over Super...

    The headbadge will have a 4-digit number stamp that will indicate the ordinal day and year the bike was built. I do believe that bike was built by Giant in Taiwan.

    I had also spotted that bike a year or more ago and had saved the link because it was Silver Mist, a rare '71 only color. Just today I thought to check to see if it also might have Campy dropouts and...
