Personally I'd take clean and old over older high end. There's a lot to be said for a super clean old 'survivor' over a well ridden high end bike. I've got several run of the mill older bikes that...

I've owned both AVA and Pivo stems over the years and never had either break on me, but I've seen a few AVA stems that did fail. Never a Pivo though. Most I've run across were on Motobecane and...

Everything seems to clean up well on the old Schwinn bikes except the crank arms. I've got a dozen or more cranks here with the chrome gone on the left arm only. The rest of the bikes were all fine....

When did they stop using that brass headbadge?...

When did they stop using that brass headbadge? That alone may be a clue as to its age. I've got a 1980 410 that's got the same headbadge, I bought it new as a left over that Christmas.

Didn't all the 600 series hubs have a black band decal recessed in the middle of the hub?
All of those I've owned were 14-28 cassettes in 6 speed and came from upper middle end bikes.

Looks a lot like mid 80's Deore or early 105 equipment, (after the Deer head stuff), but I think in later years they had a lower end model that looked almost the same?
I had a 1986 Schwinn Super...
