Thank you! And it is this: https://global.bluelug.com/bl-select...ar-silver.html

It screws off of the mount easily to plug into a charger. Great little light.

Ten years and one month ago, I posted about my '75 Voyageur II, above. I never liked the ride all that much, and eventually stripped the frame of everything except the headset.

I've hung onto the frameset all these years, waiting for inspiration, and it came from Neal Lerner last September when he offered a 27" wheel laced to a 1951 Sturmey Archer AM three-speed IGH in the Classifieds. I finished the build late yesterday afternoon and took it for a couple of quick laps around the neighborhood. This is going to be a fun ride!

Got mine all cleaned up for Spring, I think it's a '75 too. I'd like to get metal fenders, gumwalls and a nice bell and crank caps on eventually.

@trucklet , I wanted to install a set of chrome fenders on my Voyageur II, but they wouldn't fit with the larger 27 X 1&3/8 Swift tires I had purchased for my build. I'm guessing you'd need to install 700c wheels, which is what I ran originally with the black fenders.

Your Voyageur II is rockin' its originality and the paint and chrome appear to be in great shape! My paint and chrome show loads of patina.
