    Well here is a quick run down of how to figure out what Schwinn you have.
    1st look for a sticker with the name on it (obviously that did not work)
    2nd look at the headbadge for a stamped 4 didgit # -the first three are day of manufacture1-365 the last is the year. 0-9 whith you having to guess what decade
    3rd look at stickers and build to come up with a guess and then go to step 4
    4th - Check these on line resorces provided by Mr Bob Hufford & Mr Findley

    Here's my guess:

    A 1980, '81, or '82 World Sport in Royal Maroon, with the crank chainguard removed, an updated RD, and different wheelset. Hope this helps.
