I hate that they apparently have a 6-cm purple frame available. I don't need one but I want one. Y'all enjoy yours and make sure to share your thoughts once they arrive.

The regular variant Voyageur came with 120 spacing in 1985. Mine came with the original wheelset and freewheel so I know it was 120.

Too bad that is not a 25" frame. I am a sucker for a big Raleigh. I have to talk myself out of them regularly. Seeing this was enough to convince me to put my 68 Super Course back together.
