What year Schwinn Tempo for 650b?

I just missed a chance at swapping a gianourmous Lemond Tourmalet for a 1985 Schwinn Tempo in my size. Someone with cash got there first though. I'm in project overload, but knowledge is power and all, so I read up on Tempo's a bit , and it seems like they evolved over the course of the model run. If I was going to look for another 650b conversion candidate, which years would I be looking for?

I had an '87 Tempo that cleared 700 x 28's easily. It was the model that looked like this:



Unfortunately, I can't check the chainstays since I don't have it any more, but I don't recall them being particularly tight.

So the '87 has fender eyelets. I saw one on craigslist that doesn't. It looks to be an '88.
