1986 Schwinn Voyageur Geometry

Does anybody know, or know a good source or even someone I could shoot an e-mail to regarding the geometry of an '86 Schwinn Voyageur, the touring model made by Panasonic, not the 10 speed style Voyager missing the "u"...thanks

Here is some specs for the 86, including some frame geometry. If you need something specific not covered here, let us know.

I really like how my 1984 Voyageur (non SP / Champion tubed version) rides and the geometry is the same as on your 1986 model

but I have been a bit puzzled by the 74 seat tube angle on these
Voyageurs as I thought most touring bikes from this era had used 72 or no more than 73 seat tube angles.
Any ideas on the reasoning behind a steeper seat tube angle on a tour bike?
