I have a 1983 Schwinn Sierra, one piece crank, badge # 2733. Frame seams appear Chicago. Any thoughts?

As I remember, the biggest giveaway was if the badge was affixed with machine screws, it was from Chicago. If it uses rivets, it's overseas.

Oh, and 1982 was the last Chicago Schwinn. So if that one is 1983, you missed it by a year.
