1986 was the last year that Schwinn had bicycles handmade at the Panasonic plant in Japan.
It's a beautiful bike that cries out to be ridden every time I walk by it... unfortunately, I haven't ridden it for ten years. It needs a good home with a rider that will appreciate it, take care of it and take it out a lot.
It is light, fast and a lot of fun.

From the web:
- Columbus SL/ SP mix tubing and black chrome rear stays - a first class finish.
(On classic vintage steel frames, the typical high-end Columbus-tubed bike would use their chrome-moly steel which could be drawn to different wall thicknesses and specifications. The most common "classic" designations one would find would be SL or SP -- sometimes a combination selected by a builder to suit a particular rider or riding style. Those designations signify the wall thickness. For example, an SL down tube would be drawn and butted to .9/.6/.9 mm, while an SP down tube would be 1.0/.7/1.0 mm -- making it better suited to larger frames and heavier riders.)
- Selle saddle by San Marco.
- Sugino 75 crankset. The newest and strongest crank, utilizing 75 aluminum alloy, so every effort is transformed to speed.
- Cinelli handlebars and stem steer the performance, aided by the new Tange alloy Roller 2000 headset.
Frame: Columbus SL & SP mix chromoly double butted Suntour Superbe dropouts
- Fork: Columbus Blade
- Brakes: Dura-Ace 7400
- Front derailleur: Dura-Ace 7400
- Rear derailleur: Dura-Ace 7400
- Shifters: Dura-Ace 7400
- Hubs: Shimano 600 6207

I don't know the exact size, but it is a very tall XL bike that fits my 6'2".
It’s in very good condition with clean decals and very few scratches. However, since it has been sitting around so long, it might need a tune up and perhaps new tires.
