    How much can is A 1987 Schwinn Paramountain worth?

    So this past weekend i was driving and decided to stop at a yard sale. they guy had a red Schwinn paramountain for sale. so i was wondering what value this bike has?

    Here are the Specs.

    so its about a 54 Cm
    Red has Paramountain written on the top tube
    also written is Ned Overend

    the Frame is a little rusted at some places but no major damage
    Frame.. Prestige Cromo Double Button Tubes (Tange)

    Shimano Decore XT Calipers and Brakes
    Shifters 1 is a Decore XT as well but the other one is a 7 speed shifter just Shimano Decore.

    Suntour XC Stem

    Both Front and Rear derailers are XT Decore Shimano

    Shimano Decore Cranks and Pedals

    it also has a Shark Fin

    Saddle.. Selle San Marco Mountain-Pro

    Tire Size Standard 26 the Front Rim is Original and the rear is a Spcialized rim

    I think this Bike was upgraded with the rear wheel to fit a 7 speed and the Shifter was repaced to fit the gear ratio.

    So how much is it worth?

    I think it is a total home run without a doubt. MTB values are really down right now; so if you bought it to flip you should hang on to it. Restore it completely and you'll make a ton someday. I don't really know MTB$$; but it may have significant value even now.

    Around here, in as is condition, $45. Fully refurbished, ready to ride, $150. Rust will have to be treated/dealt with. Tires need to match, non matching wheels are a negative.

    Go for the frameset option below: --->>

    Due its somewhat historical significnace I'd say the frameset alone is worth in $150+/- range with a well written ad on eBay. As a complete bike its not worth much more because it simply wasnt available as a complete bike.
