Looks like an '89 Lil' Chik: My Schwinn Lil' Chik | Rat Rod Bikes

Here are the specs for a '90 model: Schwinn 1990 Bicycle Model Line Highlights -- Lil' Chik

Made in China, value maybe $25 or less.

According to the serial no. and frame construction and decals I believe it's an '89, the '79 was a completely different animal with an electro-forged frame made in Chicago. What is the 4-digit number stamped in the headbadge? That will indicate the ordinal day and year of construction.

I am almost sure you are right, it is '89.
The s.n. 9Cxxxxx is pretty weird starting with a number (year probably) and letter (month). I found this site and they said Schwinn made bikes in Japan in 70's.
Later Schwinn serial numbers / years made
So, I thought maybe is made in Japan in '79.
