Any idea on year?

I recently built up a Schwinn as a SS daily commuter. The frame had been sand blasted when I got it - but I was told it was the Sprint model. One stamp on the right rear reads C0385 ( or maybe G0385). The other side reads 5112182. I have pulled up a few Schwinn model number lists but can't seem to identify roughly what year it wad made. Being the rookie I am with vintage bikes I thought I would ask all you experts here on the forums for a little help.

Thanks... I am curious to find out what year my bike was possibly made.

Try looking at the component numbers. Often times components can be used to assist in determining a bicycle's approximate vintage. Hope this is a help.
