    Hi,The 1088 means it was built in 1978 or 1988. I'm not sure,go to Schwinnbikeforums.com and post the question,someone there knows for certain.The G on the drop-out means it was made by Giant Bicycles. Schwinn in the early 70's did import bikes from Japan with a World badge like yours and in the 80's they certainly inported most of their road bikes from Taiwan, but I'm not familar with a World Schwinn from Taiwan.It may have been sold @ a dealer of many higher end bikes.
