There must be a listing of years made and tubes used?
I have heard SL, SLX, 531, and now your 653.
Almost all of the paint and all decals and panto are original. Some paint on the seatstays and the top tube was touched up and recleared recently. The fork is chrome, including most of the steerer.

After all, if some of the Schwinn Superiors made by Don Mainland sneaked out with Columbus SL (despite being marked 531), what's to say the plumbers throwing these Masis together weren't doing the same?

Stating the serial number would also help determine if Italy or California bike. Would also help determine if a CA Carlsbad or San Marcos or possibly a Rancho Santa Fe.
Even then, the tubing is hard to know for sure.
