Can I see your Voyageur?

I have been falling in love with these bikes over the last couple of years and would love to see more of them

World Voyageurs, Voyageur IIs, Voyageur SPs are all welcome.

Heres mine-

Here is my Schwinn Voyageur 11.8 all chrome. I've had it for about a week, but I sold it yesterday to my cycling buddy, whom I have turned into a sick bike collector like myself. He didn't even give me a chance to ride it. :-) He just bought new red tires, ordered the set of decals to restore it, and bought a red supply pouch for the back of the saddle. It is definitely a beautiful bike! Here is the lik to photobucket. Take care, thanks!

Bending (or maybe breaking the rules) a bit, but this 82 Super Sport SP that I had briefly was closer to a Voyageur than most Super Sports I've seen. Although the top tube was in my ballpark it was way too tall for me so I moved it along. Everything was stock, other than the stem that I swapped out temporarily when I was trying to make it fit better.

Double butted frame, 700c touring wheelset, frame-specific rear and front racks, cyclone mkii group, sugino AT triple crank. Kind of wish I didn't sell it.

That bike's come a long way. Did you ever get your fork issues worked out?

No, just decided to keep the strange fork. It was too much hassle to search for a new one since it rides well and it ultimately may not fit me well enough. After I ride it for a while it might end up on the Frame Doesn't Fit thread, though I don't know who, besides me, would want a Voyageur frame & Le Tour-ish fork

Here's one I sold a few years back:



I thought it was too big for me at the time, because I didn't know what I was doing :/

This is a CL find that I picked up on Friday night. I haven't done anything to it yet.



Pretty neat little bike! It's the first early one I've seen in person.

My Voyageur (1988, Tenax tubing). Got the frameset in a frame swap with AZORCH. Built it up with a mix of Shimano 600 and first gen Deore XT:

Here is my 73 World Voyageur. Too big for me.





I believe they usually had Suntour dropouts, this has Shimano.

For $75 you did well. If I were closer I would have snageed it a week ago. Did you also grab the Sports Tourer for $75?
