Name the Frame Game

I picked this up last night and the seller had no idea what brand, model, etc it was. According to my kitchen scale it weighs around 2000 grams. The seat tube is 27.2 ID, the dropouts are Suntour, rear spacing is 120mm and there is a faint ID stamp at the base of the head tube that reads “J1J48”. The included fork is a threaded Columbus/Tange, chromed, with Tange dropouts. Original color was a dark blue metallic. Ready, set, go!

Educated guess, based on dropouts, braze-ons, binder bolt attachment, remnants of distinctive midnight blue color, and chrome socks which terminate in a neat angle on the right side:
Schwinn Voyageur SP, 1985ish.

What do I win if I am right?

Ah, I remember this one. It was on OfferUp for like $50. I initial thought it a Lotus Odyssey but members here quickly quashed those hopes. I hope you appreciate this more than me.
