Hello M A V,

I think you may have quoted the serial number incorrectly. Possibly it is W891056047. If so the date of frame manufacture is 1989 October. So a 1990 model year.

Too bad about the repainting of the original frame.

Based on the lugs, dropouts and stays the frame appears to be an Olympic model and 1975 seems about right based on the serial number.
