    1973 Schwinn Paramount P-15

    Hello, someone is selling a 1973 Schwinn Paramount P-15 locally through Craigslist for $400. It is red with chrome Nervex lugs. It has full Campy Nuovo Record, except the RD (easy to remedy that, though).

    That's a great buy, isn't it? I've sent him an email and am hoping for a response.

    If the frame and fork are straight with no (or minimal) rust, and neither the stem or seatpost is stuck, $400 is a bargain.

    The RD will be either Campy Gran Turismo (1970 - mid-1972) or Shimano long cage Crane rebadged as "Schwinn-Approved Le Tour GT-300" (mid-1972 - late seventies). The GT-300 is basically first generation Dura-Ace and is far superior to the Gran Turismo in handling the triple chainring/14-31t freewheel chain wrap. If the bike has the GT-300, there's no reason to remedy it.

    Don't be surprised if it is sold. C/L sellers often do not pull down ads, and often don't bother replying either.

    I checked craigslist this morning to see if the Paramount was still there and the ad states that it was sold. Too bad. It was even in my size!
