Walt,

I have a little information on the bike here:

http://www.geocities.com/sldatabook/detail7074.html#1973worldvoyageur

It was between the fillet brazed Sport Tourer and the Paramounts in the line up. I just received some photos of an orange Voyageur, but haven't wrapped HTML around them yet. You can work your way through them by starting here:

http://www.geocities.com/sldbgallery3/1973/73wvoya002.jpg

and changing the URLs sequentially through:

http://www.geocities.com/sldbgallery3/1973/73wvoya031.jpg

Some of the photos are redundant, but I was dealing with the mother of the original owner (who died years ago and the bike's been in storage) and she wasn't sure what to photograph.

I do have an Owners Manual, but haven't scanned it yet.

Value? $250 - $300 maybe, but what do I know.

The bars may be GB. I parted out a Schwinn Super Sport today and the only marking on the randonneur bars was the GB logo about 1 inch up from the end of the left drop.

Hope this helps. Please send me photos if you take any (I'd be happy to scan and return them).

Take care,
