looking for a Vintage Schwinn

Hello, I just purchased an 80's Schwinn Spirit, after looking at some threads on this forum I realized that the bike isn't all that great. I still like the bike so I'm going to do some work to it and ride it around my neighborhood. I would like to find a really nice vintage Schwinn road bike that would be worth fixing up. There are so many different ones that I really don't know where to start, I purchased the Spirit thinking I had found a real classic, it's still a nice bike. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Hi gayb. Welcome to Bike Forums. Make your own assessment: Don't listen to the "experts". Do they know what kind of riding you do? If you like your bike, you've found the right one already.
It's like Ray Charles sang in the Pepsi commercial, "You got the right one ba....bayyyyy..."
