'72 Schwinn Paramount road/touring bike. Schwinn's best, was available by special / custom order only, not sold in stores.

Original white paint, Chicago-built Reynolds 531 steel 66cm frame with Campagnolo Nuovo Record components throughout. Original freewheel and short cage derailleur not pictured, but included with the bike. Swapped for 34/14 tooth freewheel and long cage to help on hills.

Araya 36 spoke aluminum 27" wheels with Panaracer Pasala 27 X 1" tires. VO lizard skin bar tape, NOS Campy brake hoods, Selle touring saddle, 70's vintage NOS Mirrycle rear-view mirror.

Bike maintained in original/period-correct/collectors condition, though prefer to ride it versus hang on a wall. Took it to Central California last year for Eroica CA.

A rare, desirable, and collectible vintage road bike, listing it along with my others to make space in a new residence.

Bike is set up for a tall and/or big rider. Stand-over height is around 33" and the reach is 615mm; you won't fit it unless a minimum of 6'3" with a long (34" + inseam).

Prefer email reply or text if interested. Serious inquiries please, no trades. Local delivery and/or shipping a possibility. Located 35 miles south of CD'A, 45 miles from Spokane Valley.
