How Old is this Schwinn Super Le Tour II?

Greetings! I need some Schwinn Gurus to lend their expertise. From what I have learned on-line, here's what I know about this bike I'm going to refurbish:
  • Serial #L922818 was on the left rear dropout
  • There isn't an ID on the headbadge
  • Frame was built in Japan in November in 1979 (if I'm reading everything correctly.)
But what has me scratching my head is that the decals look like those on a 1979 but I thought these were made in Chicago and would have an "S" in the serial number?
Rear derailleur is the Shimano Altus and aside from the seat, the bike has all the components listed in the '79 catalog.

Could the frame be from 1979 but was not assembled until 1980?

Thanks!
Jay

Thoughts?
