Mavic Open Pro and Campagnolo wheelsets from $65 up. ================================= My personal ride. Vintage 1988 Schwinn Paramount Fiftieth Anniversary complete bike, built in the legendary Waterford factory, measures 56cm from the center of bottom bracket to the top of the top tube with a 55.5cm top tube. The frame and fork are painted a beautiful Racing Red. The paint is in very good condition, owing both to the quality of the initial paint job and the care that was taken in protecting this frameset over the years. The paint was hand sprayed, with two coats of epoxy primer followed by four to five coats of acrylic urethane enamel color and protective clear coats. This lugged steel frame was hand built and silver brazed to within .005 inch alignment tolerance by some of the most revered master craftsmen in the history of frame building. The decal on the steel tubing shows it to be Columbus SLX, which was the high-end steel available when this Paramount was built in the famous Waterford factory in 1988. The frame has investment cast lugs and bottom bracket shell. There are two sets of water bottle bosses, pump peg and chain hanger, and the rear brake cable is routed on the top of the top tube. All of the tubes have been treated with Boeshield T-9 rust prevention spray.

The components are all high end as well. The brakes, cranks, 9 speed STI shifters, derailleurs, bottom bracket, chain, cassette (12/27), headset, and hubs are all Shimano Ultegra. The wheels are now black Mavic Open Pro's with Michelin tires. There is a Thomson seatpost, Specialized BG saddle, 3T stem, Look-type pedals, and an Axiom wireless bike computer. The components all have less than 1000 miles on them. This is a very nice looking and great riding bike at a fantastic price. There are some touched-up paint chips and chips to the decals, but this is a used and ridden bike that is in very good condition and has been well maintained. Paramount's have an impeccable reputation for quality workmanship and wonderful ride. $650 for the complete bike picked up. ============================== This Bianchi Trofeo frame with matching fork is in very good condition and will be a beautiful looking and riding bike when built up. This frame measures 55.5cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube, or 56.5cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the top tube, with a 55.5cm top tube and a 133mm headtube. The frame and fork are painted Ferrari Racing Red with bright white decals outlined in black. The frame is fully lugged using Bianchi Exclusive Dedacciai Zerotre steel tubing. The downtube is ovalized at the bottom bracket shell for both stiffness when climbing and sprinting, and for strength. The fork is a unicrown threaded model with 1 inch steerer. This frame and fork were made in Italy. The rear chainstays measure a longish 42cm for comfort and stability, with vertical dropouts that are 130mm wide. This frame uses a clamp-on front derailleur, has two sets of water bottle bosses, and the rear brake cable is routed through split stops on the top of the top tube. There are some touched-up paint chips, and of course a mark where the clamp-on derailleur was installed, but there are no rust or dents as this frame and fork are in very good condition. All of the tubes and fork have been treated on the inside with Boeshield T9 rust prevention spray. There is a headset installed, but it is a no-name model and is too rough to use unless you want to try and overhaul it. $100 picked up. ============================ Thanks,
