Schwinn Le Tour

Thought I'd share a few pictures of one of my other vintage rides, a 1979 Schwinn Le Tour.
Fully original, as far as I can tell, I bought this for eroica, though bought unseen, it turned out to be too big for me so has been languishing under a tarp ever since.
Given the recent nice weather, I thought I'd take it for a spin and take a few photos whilst I was at it.
Sadly, it is still too big so may be up for sale soon.

For some reason I really like that. I cannot put my finger on exactly why though.

Looks like all original equipment, excepting the fenders/mudguards. Normandy Hubs, high flange. I know a fellow commutes to work on one almost exactly like it.
I said original equipment as my only point of reference is the sales brochure for this model which features exactly the same set up, I have never seen another in the flesh, so to speak.
