I agree, $350 on CL but it may take a few months being a larger size.

General Info on Schwinn Voyageur Touring Bikes

As far as I know all vintage Voyageur & Voyageur SP frames were sourced from Panasonic in Japan, but the later years (1986-1991) might have been sourced elsewhere.

If built by Panasonic it will have a Panasonic serial number on the lower head tube.

There's your Panasonic serial number in the pics! It's probably extremely similar or identical to the Panasonic PT 3500. I had one go through my hands. That fork crown looks as I remember the Panasonic's, as well as the absence of a front rack braze in middle of fork blade. The guy who bought it carried on about that. :-). I'd say it is a nice vintage touring bike.

You'd think those tailwind bags would add more to the price. I'd go with the lower price ($350).
