Hi Jim,

Here's my latest project. I purchased this bike just before Christmas and wasted little time cleaning it up and getting it set up to ride.

It came with all the original components, and most were in great shape. I did rebuild the wheels, using Mavic Open Pro 36 hole clinchers as the tubular rims that were on it were beyond repair. I also replace the too short stem and too narrow handlebar with a Nitto Pearl stem and a Nitto B115 handlebar. The bike came with long reach Campagnolo side pull brakes which were an option back then, but I felt a nice pair of center pulls would be more appropriate. I was lucky to find a brand new set of Weinmann "Schwinn Approved" center pulls on Ebay. I matched them up with a new set of Tektro brake levers, which I know will cause a lot of grumbling, but hey, I'm the one who rides the bike! I also found some vintage weinmann brake cable stops on ebay. I used Vredistein 700x25 tires and Berthoud stainless steel fenders. The frame has some scratches and scars, but no dents or dings and the chrome is decent. Overall not bad for a vintage 1966 Paramount!

Thanks for your wonderful website,
