Schwinn Chrome racing bike

I have a Schwinn Chrome bike that I need help Identifying. The serial number is #L623633 which leads me to believe it was built end of 1976. It weighs in at approx. 24.8lbs. I would assume being that it is chrome it would be a Le Tour or a Paramount. The thing that is throwing me is it has all Shimano 105 parts. I don't think that they have been changed out because it is all Shimano 105. None of the spec sheets list these shimano number. Does anyone know what I have? I tried to upload pic but it said file was to big.

Push that stem down unless you want new front teeth.

Super LeTour. 105 stuff is not original.

+1 Stem is over extended.

Thank you for the information. I found that it is a 1977 Le Tour that was reconditioned with all brakes and running gear using all Shimano 105 parts. Any idea what it may be worth?

Depends where you live? In Chicago, I'd guess $300-350 depending on time of year, quality of ad, etc.
