Thank you For any help, this is making me a bit crazed. I hope this is the correct place to post.
Do you know what model Schwinn this is? is it schwinn, panasonic built?
Serial number is stamped on thebottom of the bottom bracket, not on the headset, or the rear axle mounts.
Serial # H8L25662. could the second letter be a "B"? No,don't think so it is pretty clear.

Rear deraileur, Sunshine made in Japan rear hub, 36 spoke, UKAI RIM 27x1 1/4 made in Japan rear rim.

(Maybe not matching front wheel fEMCO 27x1 1/4 made in Taiwan/ Schwinn approved 10 76 or 10 78 or 10 70
(can't read well) made in Japan hub with cutout holes on the side of the hub 36 holes, might be correct because it has a washer on both sides

Not sure it's a Schwinn, although the brakes & levers seem to indicate that. Could the . I don't know that I've ever seen a crankset like that on a Schwinn. I would check the low end of the Schwinn catalogs from the 1960s (after 66), 1970s and early 80s.

the serial number list would indicate 1978? H8L25662
I have looked at alot oF catologs, It seems to be close to a 1976 or 1978 le tour
but not all the specs are the same. 12 speed.
I'm conFused.
