This is my 23 inch World Voyageur, in as found condition. I picked it up from a guy that got it at a storage locker auction. Incredible condition for as found and very original. The non-original tires are pretty sucky. Note the original saddle.




Its hard to part with ones like this one.

It makes a good mate to the 1974 Sport Tourer I have (also in as found condition and very original including Brooks saddle, desperately needs gum walls!!! Those black walls look hideous on this bike). The color matched brake lever covers are pretty neat (a Schwinn sold accessory):




Typical not close by finds. One was in Walhalla, SC, the other in Charlotte, NC.
