1973 Schwinn Paramount

For Sale: 1973 Schwinn Touring Paramount New Paint and braze-on shifters/cable stops, cable guides and rack braze-ons.   23" Size C-C.  Approx. 56.5 cm C-C.  Serial #L73xxxxx
  • Original Campy components, Cinelli oval logo stem and Brooks Pro saddle in excellent lightly used condition.  Saddle was very nicely customized with  holes on sides vintage style.  Brake calipers are Nuovo Record, but levers are Gran Sport with Shimano hoods. Suntour ratcheting bar end shifters, (NOT shown in photos) Suntour XCD rear derailleur, Suntour 6 spd freewheel and newer 64x40 Cinelli Giro d'Italia bars are also excellent and barely used. 
  • Rigida 27" rims are true and look new.  NOTE: This frame was intended for 27" wheels. The long reach Nuovo Record brake shoes are nearly at the bottoms of the calipers and the rear has a drop bolt.
  • Frame was professionally repainted when braze-on fittings were added. Only scratch is a hairline on the left chainstay, but too small for photo.  Original chrome looks good.  It is missing all of the seat tube Paramount/Schwinn decals as well as the splitter stripe decals between the chrome and the paint on the fork and rear stays.
