Purchased across the hall 3 years ago, still in the same box and packaging as I received it. Linking to the previous seller's pictures since bike has been untouched and he is a better photographer than me, anyway.

Too many projects and distractions so I haven't been able to get around to building it. 56 c-t-t seat tube, 56 cm top tube, repainted by Joe Bell. In amazing condition.

These Paramount frames are made by the same builder later know as Waterford in Wisconsin. Schwinn went down chapter 11, at which time the Waterford emerged.

Beautiful workmanship. I'm glad it's way big for me.
Good luck with the sales.

At 1973 that would be a Chicago frame.

The move to Waterford, WI happened a little later.

That's true. It's been a long time so I forgot the Chicago location.

Sale is frame and fork only. I will check on headtube length. Rear spacing is 120 according to the information I was able to find on the google machine.
