Schwinn World Voyageur 21"

SOLD!
I have a 21" World Voyageur in the classic orange color. Very original. Even original bar tape.

I stripped it all down and cleaned the bike. Needs to be built back up with cables, chain, tires and tubes.

Paint and chrome are very good. Worst area is under the top tube and a bit on the drive side top tube. Scratches.

The original front derailleur had cosmetic issues, I replaced it with a SunTour VX. Pedals were heavily rusted as were the brake hanger stops front and rear. They will need to be sourced.


Offering it at $225 plus shipping.

The World Voyageur and Voyageur II came originally with a Fujita Seamless Super Y.F.C saddle:



Those saddles have a very thin leather covering and are easily damaged, Brooks or Fujita Belt saddles were common replacements. The bike in the OP appears to have the original saddle.

I am tempted to buy it just for the rear wheel and seat as I have one in my size that I am building.
