I have a Schwinn Paramount with the decals set shown here:

(The pics are not my bike, but have the saem decal set wHICH the Waterford site says is 1980-1983 Waterford production). However the discussion on the Waterford siTe is vague about serial numbers in this era, mostly giving example after Wterford became independent of Schwinn in the early 90's. Anyone own a Paramount from the era pictured who can tell me your serial number and how to interpret it?

Regards,
