Schwinn Voyageur 11.8

Trying to sell this for the right price. Looking to get more if the buyer wants the brooks saddle.

Its a project in its current condition. Fork looks ever so slightly bent, might just be the picture. I would replace the seat to avoid arguments with potential buyers. As it sits, maybe $150. With new cables, replace faded cable housings, bar tape and brake lever hoods installed, clean and grease seat post, $225. Large size will make selling harder. Is it a 25 inch frame? If so, that makes it more challenging.

Needs red bar tape IMHO. I sold this one (23 inch frame) last year.

+1 on both the valuation at $150-225 (it is a huge bike and you need to find the right person to buy it) without the Brooks and +1 about changing the saddle. That Brooks Professional will bring you more on ebay ($60-90) that any buyer is willing to add to the cost of the bike.

Hi Eboard17 -
That looks like 23" frame to me too - if so it's a mid sized frame. Cleaned up, I would think it would bring $250 or more - not less.
(It IS a Schwinn, and a really nice looking one at that)

I agree with the disposition on the Brooks - sell it separately (or use it yourself). Just put a presentable road bike saddle on the flip.

grand rapids isn't really a hot market unfortunately... especially with all the snow on the ground. wait till spring. there has been a gray super le tour 12.8 sitting at $200 for quite a while (albeit yours is a better bike).

Zombie 3.5 year old thread, and the OP hasn't posted anything in 10 months. So, not likely.

If you're 6'1" + try this one, seller confirmed it's a 25" frame.
