Schwinn Le Tour 1987 where was it manufactured?

Hi all,

Just bought an '87 Schwinn Letour for $50. Looks to be in great shape but just wondering where it was manufactured if any one has any insight? The head badge says Schwinn Chicago, but I understand by 1987 Schwinn factories in Chicago and Greenville were both shutdown. The frame has a sticker that says USA, but I read somewhere that Schwinn was getting bikes from Taiwan by this point.

Thanks in advance.

Greenville plant was open through October 1991, and I think your Le Tour was made there but I can't find a link to support that. Perhaps @Scooper or someone else has that handy.

Looks like it was Greenville according to this documentation.
