A New 'Voyage'
My friend Don Arnold has hooked me into the restoration of older touring bikes, a "voyage" that I do not regret. I purchased my first oldie -- a 1982 Schwinn Voyager -- and removed, with Don's help, all components, leaving the frame. After a little "elbow grease", I now have the frame looking almost new. I will replace the head set, handle bars, shifters, wheel set and bottom bracket to make a completely new bike. I will post pictures of the frame shortly. I am already attached to my Voyager, and cannot wait to get it in riding shape. Stay posted!
