Help Identifying Make/Model of this bike

I snagged this off of CL. All I know is the frame is chromoly, has Weinmann wheels supposedly (I cannot tell). I'm assuming this is a Schwinn because the front brake says Schwinn on it. The guy painted it white/red, that's not the original color. Original might be blue but I am unsure.

Haven't found the serial number yet, plan to strip the paint off this weekend.

something about the slots in the fork for wheel safety clips is trying to say schwinn to me.

I remember a tab like that, might have been on a Raleigh. Whatever it was, it's not anymore. Schwinn brakes means nothing. I just took off a set of 1972 Schwinn wheels found on a 1977 Centurion.

The guy who sold it to me said it was a chromoly frame. It's incredibly light but perhaps most older bikes are, I'm unsure. I've been looking online at older bikes and I thought it looked fairly similar to the Schwinn Voyageur and Schwinn World but I haven't found any exact matches.

Yeah I figured the brakes could've been pulled from another bike, just thought it was a good starting point.
