    S/N L526989

    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
