    1973 World Voyageur

    I am trying to replace some parts of a 1973 Schwinn World Voyageur by Panasonic.
    Specifically, I am trying to find a rear hub with quick release skewers used at that time.
    The previous owner changed out the 5 speed cassette to a 6 speed, and just used nuts on each side. I am also looking at replacement lever covers on the bar shifters (they were gray originally). Also, I am looking for a possible source for replacement decals.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.:

    I'm also confused by your hub issue. In 1973 they only had freewheels, not cassettes. It sounds like you are saying the previous owner switched out the QR axle for a solid axle. If this is the case, you can easily reverse the process. These axles should be readily available.
