I am not sure of the year, all that I could see was a Chicago stamp on the headtube but it also said made in Taiwan near the BB. It looks similar to sprays but I can't be sure. I also ground off the cable guides. The original color was a maroon red type color, with maybe a hint of pink. The steel is 4130, probably very common for all of these. It said traveler on the top tube and schwinn on the downtube. I am not sure if that helps. It rides great, although much more flexy than my Soma Rush. ALso, when I ride, the front rim looks like it is tilted to the left slightly. Either the forks is slightly bent or the wheel is not dished properly is my guess.
I still need to clean up the seatpost as some spraypaint found its way there.
I really like the new look of the chop and flops as well. At this point, I am much more used to riding in an aggressive position, been riding about a year now.
I thought about outlining the lugs, but am not sure what to use, plus now there is a layer of clearcoat over it all so that might not work.
Thanks a lot for the comments, I know that conversions get a lot of s4*7 here.
