1973 Schwinn World Voyageur - The first Schwinn commisioned to be built in Japan by Panasonic. Check the history.
It is a great bike to ride, comfortable, stable, shifts flawlessly and brakes the same. The Kool Orange paint is in good shape and polishes nicely. The pointed chrome lugs are "sharp," the rest of the chrome is in good shape too. All chrome frame underneath the paint. The frame and fork are straight. This bike is ready to ride now.
