SOURCE: I found two Schwinn bikes
The Le Tour serial number does not appear to be correct. Please check it as it is probably a AH beginning instead of 4H. If AH it is a 1972 (January). Nice bike with 3 piece cranks. Heavy, but not normally worth much. Expect a value under $200 if in really great shape. The Sports Tourer is definitely from 1972 (December). Also not worth a bunch. Also 3 piece cranks. Heavy steel Frame and fork. Remember that old man Schwinn wanted to keep his business proprietary, so his 27" tires and tubes from that era are a different size then everyone else. Finding "Schwinn Size" tires might be a little tricky and your normal Ace or Walmart may not have them. Also, buying too cheap of tires is not a great idea as often they won't bead well and you ride with humps. Tires alone could set you back over $100.00. Good tune-ups and cleanings could hit you for several hundreds more. If you don't want to put more then they are worth into them I would take off the cranks & seats and sell them on ebay and the rest to the scrap yard. IMO

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.
What exactly are you needing instructions for? Most bikes are just static frames with a bunch of aftermarket (Shimano, for example) stuff hung on them.
For unique parts use a search engine. There MAY be something out there.
Except for proprietary frames or technologies, everything on a common bike is found on just about any other brand of bike and the individual components are usually documented at the individual manufacturers' websites.
Places like http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help document many of the repair and adjustment procedures.
Google will find tons of How-to videos for assembly and adjustment.

They don't break out garden variety bikes. As a bike is just a static frame with a bunch of aftermarket stuff thrown on it, generic manuals work well. Try one that fits, say, where it was bought.
Use a Search Engine for specific questions like adjusting brakes or shifting and you will find many videos.
I always start here...
