Hi, a newbie here -- great site! I lucked into a 72 Paramount (#L72325) that needs a little TLC (tires, cable housings, cables, brake levers). I'd like to know in general which components were original, so I don't foolishly ditch something hard to find. Anyone know of a resource for Paramounts of this vintage? What info should I be supplying here to better identify the bike for y'all?
Re the brake levers -- they can't be original. Someone put Schwinn levers w/ the cheater top-of-the-bar extensions on, but luckily left the Weinmann centerpulls.
Any comments on tires (and rims)? Cable housings? Freewheels? Decals?
Any guidance on how much to put into the bike (like, it's not worth more than xxx)?
Thanks and I'll post any add'l info that's needed!...
