I have since replaced the wheels with 700c VO Raid rims, Sapim Race spokes, VO Grand Cru hubs and 32mm Paselas.

She is a beauty. I love the orange. I have an 85 Super Le Tour, and I find it to be pleasant. There is something about the voyageurs that does it for me. The chrome lugs and dropouts are something that I have always found appealing. At some point in my life, I became a big fan of Schwinn's. Not sure when it happened, but this is what I've set my sights on.
