    Schwinn??

    I bought this off a scrapper this afternoon..............Any help identifying, I would be grateful.

    I cannot make out the serial #, SR Laprade seatpost, Shimano "333" hub and barend shifters, rim has a "Gentleman" decal, Shimano Tourney RD, Tourney crankset, 5 speed Shimano freewheel, turkey levers have "Schwinn Approved" stamped on them.

    Someone probably stripped a Schwinn to make this one. Schwinn never tried to imitate their own Paramount with Nervex-lookalike lugs.
