    What year are the bikes beside the Schwinn? Are you really asking just about the frame, or about an entire bike? If it's just the frame, then the one that has the most proper braze-ons for mounting racks, etc. would probably be my first choice.

    If you're asking about bikes and they have original parts: I'm not into touring but I would think being able to get replacement parts quick in the event something breaks on a tour would be a big deal. For that reason I don't think I'd want any of them if they are all as old as I think.

    Well, lets take a which of these geriatric bikes would be the best for touring:

    Scwinn Letour: No. This thing weights a ton.

    Fuji: Same, just not as bad.

    Panasonic: Might be a possibility

    Bianchi: Probably the best choice, from a manufacturer that has a history of quality bikes.

    Of course, since these bikes have been on the road since when shoulder pads were in fashion, god only knows what they need. Does your budget only allow you to look at old iron like this?
