According to the serial number it is from 1982.

The 1983 Predator Sting frames were brazed where the head-tube meets the frame tubes and tig welded every place else. Unlike this frame that is tig welded everywhere.

Re: 1982 Schwinn Sting

I own one of these too
According to Marc Muller himself these are early 1982 team sample frames , not 1983 predator sting frames.
Can't argue with the man who made them.
