Finally riding a big boys bike
Interested and not tooo far away, I've been looking for similar but since I get no response from PM's I'll put it here.

I'd like to see the serial Number. Considering this bike is NOT "all original." I would like to reconcile this.
IE: It looks like 590 ISO rims and tires. If not, where did those Schwalbe tires come from? I think they made a narrow version 597 in the 90's for a short time. So not Brand new or not S-6? Can you see even a shadow of any decals on the chain guard? And also, the "AS" seamless tubing" decal doesn't belong on a Chro-Mo frame, and other smaller stuff.
It was obviously a special bike. What else do we know about its history?

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Nice bike.

Any others out in the collector community for comparison?

I doubt Schwinn sold many.

For the asking price.... I'm kind of surprised by the nit picking.
