Different paint?

On vintage bikes, there used to be a ton of different tubing and finishing choices. Some might have light tubes for the main tubes, but heavy tubes for the rear triangle or fork on some models, and light all around on other models.

It is hard to say for sure, but it appears as if at least some low level and mid level bikes use the same frames. The Top/Elite frames may be subtly different.
