---Man!,you guys are hard on my mind,or what is left
of it.
I remember little about that "world"thing.I do
remember that it appeared at the same time or a little
earlier than the "Le Tour" bikes.And it was a first
rate Japanese manufactured Schwinn.Component wise,the
only thing I really remember is that it had a Nervar
crankset.And the frame had made in Japan on it.It,as
far as I know or can remember is the only one I ever
saw to note.I also remember there was some controversy
around it.I seem to recall a price of about $275.00.
Does "World Voyager" sound correct?
The one I saw was orange and was in a sporting
goods store/bike shop in Richmond Va..And if I had to
put a year on it,I would say late 1972/early 1973.
As for the Dura Ace center pulls I cannot remember
if they were on this bike in "Rowlett's" or not.In
fact those brakes did not really make much of an
impression on me.I do seem to recall them being
advertised in "Bicycling" for a month or two and then
the sides appeared?The "Tourney" of later?Is nearly
identical.
