> 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.
