Feel like I just came home from the junk yard. I bought the Schwinn 11.8 Voyageur. The chrome has no rust, what I thought was rust is lubeanddirtturnedyellow. Now the fun begins, scrapping parts and keeping the usables. Got a nice front hub high flange Schwinn approved QR new bearings and cones.

Congrat's. I posted my single speed project further down on this page. I can't tell you how much fun it is. I'm currently looking for an 87-90 Bianchi Primo for my next single speed project.

... get that thing fixed up, and I'll get the 'Mount fixed up, and we'll both show up at one of MB1's NSA-OCE centuries and blind 'em all with the shine!

imagining riding 100 miles on a fixie, I am such a gear jockey.
