Because my brother ordered and bought the bike brand new in 1985. Anaheim Schwinn assisted him on the build and he went all-out. It lived most of its life hanging in various garages. Because the branding/decals were applied after the clearcoat, they faded away over the years. I have Schwinn Authorized replacement decals that accurately match the old pics he has of it. The only original sticker on the bike is a small "Made In Japan" near the bottom of the seat tube.

Hi
I have one of these same frames with a Serial number BS367823. By this Serial number it was made in 1981 but others say 1983 due to the Asian Serial number Guide. Schwinn use the B=month and S= 1981 but the ASNG say B=month S= Asian made and 3 = year. I consider both can be right but Schwinn did use S for 1981. I have seen only a small number of the frames. with only 3 and 4 being the first numbers. The serial number on these frames being the Schwinn format that was used in 1981 I feel it would have not been used by Schwinn again in 1983 or 1985 as it would have have serial number legality issues for Schwinn of issuing the same number again for both years.
I refer you to another forum https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vintage/376857-id-lugged-schwinn-mtb-frame-3.html for a long standing discussion. and this one

Both I have contributed to but the Alternative Schwinn goes back earlier to 2006 where I used one less and a name.

I recently viewed a Specialised Stumpjumper of 1982 that is almost the same as these frames

I am still crumbling
