You’ll need to post ten times before you can add photos. It is designed to discourage spammers. So, read through the forums and post a few times,
and then come back to ask your questions. :-)

Hello Mark and welcome to the forum. Your bikes are probably 1986 models (the only year for a true Schwinn Passage) if they have lugged frames. The color is Gunmetal. If they are not lugged frames, they may be 1990 something models built in China by the company that bought the Schwinn name. I think they are nice looking bikes. Nice finds. If you found them on CL or Letgo locally, I must have missed them ( I am in Toledo too).

Hi Mark;

As noted above, if your bikes have lugged frames (sockets where the tubes fit togather) they are rare bikes made for only 1 year. Unfortunately in the vintage bike game rate does not always mean valuable. Regardless of dollar value, These are great riding bikes with the features you want for touring. If the tubes fit together smoothly, with no sockets at the joints, they are bikes made in Taiwan or China after the Schwinn final bankruptcy sent their name to the highest bidder.
