It looks a lot like my 1977 Schwinn traveler...based on a quick Google image search, it could be a 1976.

Edit: just looked at a few more years...could even be newer, hard to tell from the pic.

i just found this thread. https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...-traveler.html wondering if it would be ok for my height. the stack isnt what im worried about, its the reach/top tube. it is my first bike and i probly wont be riding extreme distances, so do u think this would be ok? this is 200$ and he said all the components are in great shape. i just dont have the money for some of the bikes i found that Do fit my geometry requirements.

Schwinn made a bigger frame than that one, I have seen many of them, in the Continental
that bike is an import made for Schwinn. You need a bigger frame if you are 6' 5

Looks like a World Traveler, or possibly a Le Tour, likely from around 1980. They are reasonably well-made bikes with good quality components, and are quite comfortable to ride. I had an '81 Le Tour, and enjoyed it a lot.
