Great re-build! One note - this isn't a Voyageur II. The Voyageur II was the successor to the World Voyageur (baby paramount), and was made from 1974-1976. You've got the full fledged touring Voyageur, which ran from 1983 to 1991. Judging by the decals and color, I'd say yours is a 1987 Model. Sorry for the lecture ;-) Enjoy that fine ride!

Thanks! I took it out for a test spin today and it rode like any good steelie. I was also quite happy about it not making any rattles or pings with so much parts and accessories loaded on the bike. It turned out to be a nice workhorse. :)

Man, I took it out a few times and I am absolutely loving the longer wheelbase handling of the touring frame. So much more stability than any racing bike... And I can't deny the convenience of actually having a bike that can stand up when parked with a kick-stand!! LOL!

That leather saddle is a real pain in the butt though, till it wears some and gets softer.
