Raleigh Dynatech Voyager: a new project for winter

This year’s winter build (one of them) is going to be a 1992 Raleigh Dynatech Voyager. Its Reynolds cromo steel tubing (apart from an aluminium head tube) promises a lively feel, perhaps without the comfort of its big brothers in the Raleigh titanium range.

Check out the Dynacurve top tube. Lush. Only the largest size had this feature, making this a quite rare (but not priceless) frame.

The matching Dynatech cromo stem and Reyolds 501 cromo steel handlebar complete the fuselage nicely.

Which parts to build this up with? Ideally, I’d keep things as period correct as possible, so Shimano Deore LX / DX would fit the bill. And the look I’m probably going to try and capture can be seen in this early Dynatech brochure:

Or possibly something along these lines (again, from an eary nineties Dynatech brochure):

In any case, it’s going to be plenty of fun …
