Subject: [CR]Speaking of nice tall Paramounts

I've just posted some photos of a very nice '65 Paramount on my web gallery. The bike belongs to a local family and is on display at a bike store here in town. It was getting pretty tatty looking after hanging from the ceiling for the last ten years so I offered to clean it up a bit. The bike is not for sale so please do not ask.

It's a great example with some cool parts. 180mm 151 cranks with a 44T inner ring, Brooks B-17 with alloy rivets, Mafac Dural Forge brakeset.

The original owner was a racer in So Cal and worked at Northridge Schwinn. He died young while on a training ride and never got to put too many miles on this one.
