1982 Schwinn Super Sport, I just found the reference at 26.1 pounds. thanks for the interest.
It is local and looks like it is made with chromoly 4130 which is almost as light as reynolds 531.

I've got an '85 torn down in the shop. Columbus tubing (Tenax). Weighs in per catalog at 22lb, but I'd swear it's even lighter than that. Right on the cusp of too small for me, but I plan to take it for a spin when it's done, seems like a nice ride.

Heavy? That year Super Sport was a touring bike with front and rear racks. 26 lbs with racks and water bottle as stated in the catalog. Later 1980`s Super Sports were racing bikes and much lighter.

Yes, welcome to the C & V forum, and nice job answering your own question.
Don't let the clever responses throw you off...this really is a nice crowd.
And, they are very informative as well, although it sometimes takes a while for them to focus!
