Schwinn Voyageur SP

Picked this up yesterday. Its a 25" frame, and looks to have a chrome fork and chain stays. There's a bunch of of scratches and chips and a little rust. I took a picture of the only bad patch I found. I'd like to trade for a similar 23" frame, but am interest to know what the bike is worth as a whole and just as a frame and fork.

That paint should be rather easy to touch up with either a small tin of enamel (if you can find it online) or some lacquer nail polish from your big general merch store. I would try to clean up the rust first, like around the seat lug.

These are really nice designs that, when fully overhauled, should go for $400ish in a big bike market or maybe more on ebay.

I understand you want to switch the parts to a smaller frame. To me, that would be the only reason to sell it as a frameset.

Not to nitpick, but I don't think that is a Voyageur SP. It's just a Voyageur.

The Voyageur SP has different tubing, Columbus SL & SP, vs the Tenax model you have. Some people will say the SP is a much better frame, though the non-SP Voyageur is nothing to sneeze at IMHO.

It was one model higher. Better frame, better components, lighter weight. The typical stuff you get when you move up the product line. The Voyageur was a fine bike, the Voyageur SP was just "finer" and less common. Stainless spokes on wheels, etc. Some parts were common between the two bikes.

It looks like 40mm is the limiting measurement for tire width clearance and height above the rim. I'd guess 28mm actual tires with fenders, 32mm actual without. Thats with 27" wheels, so if the cantilever brakes play well with 700c, you might get 32mm under fenders.
