'72 / '73 Schwinn World Voyageur
Again, sorry this was my eyes only so I don't have pictures and this isn't coming from a post on Craigslist but I saw a opaque blue Schwinn Voyageur at a bike shop asking $300 for it. The frame is immaculate condition. I didn't see if the components were original or not. I turned it down originally but it was so different I came home and researched it. I went through the Schwinn catalogs looking mainly at the logo on the bikes since I couldn't find a catalog with the Voyageur in it. It looks like it's got to be a 72 or 73 model.

Anyway, of course, I'm curious on the pricing? If I wanted to I could pick it up tomorrow. It sounds like it's top dollar for it so if I could haggle with them what would be a good price?

I also wanted to add that I have done my research and looked at all the other threads posted about that model and year range of the Schwinn World Voyageur here on bikeforums and elsewhere. So if you refer me to another thread -- I've already read it.

If the components are not original the value is very much diminished. If they ARE original, then I would say $300 is a good price for one in good condition.
They were only made in 1973. This is very much a collectible bike.

I have a nice one in the flipper queue in Kool Orange right now, and I would guess that it would bring $350 or even $400 all cleaned up.

I've got a 73 WV as well. Nice bike, all about condition. I'm kind of a sucker for the Schwinnasonics. So depending on condition, I would buy it at that price.
