When I saw the "INEXTERNAL" tubing decal i thought "hang on that's a Motobecane" and the higher end version that used Columbus tubing with that short-lived brazing technique...but turns out it's a bit of that and something more:
"In 1985 or thereabouts Mongoose (yes, the BMX company) decided they’d test the market for road bikes, and they were able to convince the venerable French concern MBK (previously Motobecane, bankrupt in 1981 and resurrected in 1984) to produce these bicycles for them. $399.00 brand-new. It was favorably reviewed in the cycling press, but never caught on."

They pop up here in the LA area sporadically, I stumbled on the these bikes a few years ago, I have posted a few here. Keep thinking I am going to pick one up but haven't yet. Love the idea of a Columbus road bike with a BMX headbadge

I think 58cm is a good guess

Vintage Schwinn World Voyageur

$120
Listed about an hour ago in Maple City, MI
  • Condition
    Used – good
  • Material
    Steel
  • Bicycle type
    Touring bike
1970s vintage. Made in Japan. The steel frame absorbs shocks really well. Super comfortable ride. New Tires, new tubes. Brooks leather saddle is also so comfortable because it molds to your anatomy (!). Pletcher aluminum rack. Doofy handlebar wrap -- you'll want to change that out right away! I love this bike and hate to see it go.

I have a rebuilt RockShox Paris-Roubaix SL suspension fork lying in wait for a frame like this so that together they may become the ultimate unholy Frankenbike…

That IS a bad pic haha. There are other, better pics in the ad. I have that exact bike, 1986 High Sierra, it's awesome. Well, mine is smaller and in rougher shape. This one looks clean and original with the roller cam brakes and wishbone stem.
