Hi! Newbie here. I just bought a Schwinn Super Le Tour 1980 model (I believe) manufactured in Japan in 1979 (Serial number 60639). I bought it for $75 on Craigslist. It rides well, and it is in a pretty good condition, except for a few paint chips. Per owner, tires might need to be replaced. I think it still has all the original components on it.
I'm buying this bike to keep and not for flipping... do you think i got a fair deal on this bike for $75?

I think you did just fine.
Here is a brochure page for you.
and a spec sheet.

Looks sweet and just my size!
Yea new tires are never a bad idea on an old bike.
Good deal as long as it fits you. The seat post is way low.
You did great if it fits. Ride it for a while and see how you like it, but at some point you might want to get rid of the foam covers on the handlebar and replace them with tape. It looks in great shape
