Parts really don't matter what year the bike is. Many of the parts had common sizing for decades.

Try posting a picture. It will help a lot.
Super Le Tour 12.2 (the 12.2 was it's weight in Kgs, btw), was made only 3 years. 1976, 1977 and 1978. I would look for the letter date codes on the components if I were you

1976 model year, frame built in November, 1975.
From Schwinn Bulletin 23, Schwinn Bicycle Identification Numbers:
Bicycles from Japan have a production month letter in either the first or second position and a production year number in the other (first or second) position. Examples J677123 = September, 1976, 6J77123 = September, 1976.
A=January, B=February, C=March, D=April, E=May, F=June, G=July, H=August, I=Not Used, J=September, K=October, L=November, M=December
