Subject: [CR]chiorda-colnagos and Paramount questions

I have a couple of questions about older bikes.

What is a Chiroda-Colnago bike? The frame is decaled with Chiroda, but it appears to be made by Colnago. It has the Colnago Club cutout in the bottom bracket. It is a track bike.

Were there Paramounts from the Schwinn factory that had non-chromed Nervex lugs? Was this a special model or could it have been a special order? The bike I'm looking at is from the sixties and does not appear to have had the lugs painted over, but I'm not a terribly good judge of such things unless it's obvious, in which case, no judgment is needed.

Thank you.

Cheers.

Tom
