Classic & Vintage - Who beat me to the $250 Paramount on DC's Craigslist?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
This bike was posted and sold a few weeks back. Did one of you get this bike? I wasn't fast enough...
I think it was an early 70's Paramount, triple Campy cranks, original owner, etc
Ok, I posted the links for the photos and I can see them above this line in edit mode but they don't show up with the thread... I am using that photo button next to the video button. What I am doing wrong?
Either post links or get the code under the "Share" tab would be my guess.
The links you have are for the photo's website page with all the junk and info. You want the straight photo link.

Not me, must have been while I was on vacation. Also willing to bet it went for more than the original listing price.
Paramounts sell super fast in the DC area and at a premium price. Just sold my '86 Waterford Paramount with full DA 7402 and new wheelset with 7403 Hyperglide hubs in a day and it was over a grand. Lots of riders looking for those 55-58cm sized upscale bikes.
Still have a pristine '91 grey & white splatter Panasonic Paramount and a '90 650-sized wheel (TIG welded non-lugged frame) one, both with 105 that will be up later this summer. Bet those both move fast, too (although they will be much less expensive).
I spoke to the seller and I think I was second on the race.
Bike sold for $250, the original asking price. I should have told him right away that I was willing to make him a better offer...
