These are the bikes I desire at the moment and will be looking to stick to purchasing before anything else. I don't need and can't afford them all of course, but whatever I buy next will be from this list. However, I'm open to equivalents to some of these that I may not have considered before. 57/58 size range. Open to various years unless otherwise stated.

1986 Schwinn Voyageur
1985 Trek 720
Miyata 1000
Univega Specialissma

Pre 1976 Raleigh International or pre 1977 Super Course. International preferred.
Peugeot PX60

Hey not bad! Even the year/color of this I'd prefer, thanks! Patina doesn't typically bother me but in the above list I'm hoping to find some nicer specimens, but I think I'll message this person. I'm quite far from there but have friends in the area. Thank you.

I know it's a long shot around here for some of these, and I'm not the only one looking, but what the heck. Any leads on where to find some elsewhere would be cool too! I check all the resources I know daily. Open to various years unless otherwise stated.

I don't expect to every find the PX60.

You might have hit me at a moment of weakness..... I have a Pro Tour in 57-58 (my size) that I have been sitting on for a while and have recently contemplated letting go of. Still on fence, but writing this i guess to maybe try to nudge myself off the fence. Not sure on year, but it's the cool one (i think): burgundy with chrome lugs, the brazed-on caliper style brakes. Can send you pics and talk more via pm if that's the one/type you're thinking. PM if so, now gonna go sleep on it, haha. I've also got an 86 voyageur...green, same size.....

I just got my grubby mitts on this exact frameset. It's beautiful. In fact it's so nice I'm having a hard time figuring out how to build it up.

I have a 77 Super Course Frame and fork and an 83 Pro Tour Frame and fork and brakes I am looking to sell, too bad I am stuck in Cambodia and they are in Pennsylvania.

It would help if you had your location in your profile.

I have updated the OP. I'm currently in talks with people about an 86 Voyageur and an 85 720. Depending on how things go there that may be all she wrote for now. That being said, I've taken Centurion off the list.

Top 2

I've got the top 2.

I'd have to measure my Voyageur. I put a green B-17, matching bag and bar tape, and fenders.

I have a 24 inch 720 and 620.

Here is the Voyageur and yours truely at the Beavercreek (Ohio) Station.

Unfortunately looks to be the 25" frame, but if 23" I'd like to have a look. 23" is my upper limit in sizing though.

Sorry, Arizona! 1976 is my cutoff for the Super Course unfortunately (just added that to the OP). Potentially interested in the Pro Tour 15 if it is the blue frame but might have my hands full with other options at the moment. Feel free to send some pics though.

I am just posting a few images to show my bike if still interested.
It was stripped by the previous owner to braze on some water bottle mounts on the seat tube.
Full chrome except where the seat tube was stripped for the brazing and is painted a satin black

Will be sold as a Frame and fork with headset, cantilever brakes and straddle cables, and the DT shifter body I modded for cable stops and maybe a set of DT Aero levers.



As purchased


It rides great, I just prefer the stud mounted center pulls.
