Schwinn racer?

This bike is for sale on market place, the seller don't know what model it is but calls it a racer. Can anyone tell what model it is from this photo?

To some people any bike with drop bars is a “racer” to other it’s a touring bike.

it might be a Voyager of some sort? I would think this is a Sport Touring type bike.

"Voyageur 11.8" reads the decal on the top tube.

The 1977 SCHWINN SUPERIOR also came in that color and similar graphics such that it looks nearly like the Voyageur's little brother.

WOW

Not my cup of tea, but that is a great price for a nice bike --- i'll bet its already gone though - looked like a garage sale setting it was in

I would travel " many miles" to get this bike!!!

I couldn't get the 35.00 out of my pocket fast enough !!


I always negotiate when buying items....NOT this time

I don't even want a Voyageur and at $35 I'd be racing you there.

Yes they do; I have a 77 Superior but the Superior and Sport Toured have 5 vis TA or Nervar cranks so ruled that out.
