Late 80's Schwinn Sprint

I have a Schwinn Sprint (Taiwan) and I am interested in finding the year the bike was built.

I have a head badge number 2759 which first off make me think it's a 1989

Next set of numbers is from the bottom bracket


Also there is another number on the BB 68J8

Thanks in advance[/SIZE]

BB number probably tells you its a 68mm shell and (maybe) needs a J8 spindle. Not sure about the spindle.

Ask about the bike in Classic and Vintage.

I believe you will find that it was a Giant built Schwinn from 1989
