The Bike I Really Wanted… 26 Years Later.

In Gear, Touring on August 25, 2009 at 12:40 pm

I purchased my first “real” bike in 1983. A Schwinn Voyageur. Nice bike, however, the bike I really wanted, but couldn’t afford, was the Specialized Expedition. A couple of weeks ago I finally, 26 years later, purchased a 1983 Specialized Expedition frame.

I’ll post pics of the actual frame soon and attempt to illuminate the slightly murky details of the Specialized Expedition.

  1. Nice Expedition! I have one too, although not as nice.
    Where did you get the Specialized catalog page or magazine ad? Any chance I could get a copy or a link to the original?
