schwinn paramount

Hello, I just purchased an older Schwinn paramount. It has a serial # on the bottom bracket. I was wondering how I can find out more about this bike. I am new to this so please bear with me.

Thanks, jocul4635

Just a quick clarification, Waterford is in Wisconsin.

Thanks for posting the serial number. I'm glad you were able to decipher the code.
