    Pictures of the chrome P15-9

    I finally got the new Mavic Open Pro rims, Conti clinchers, Kool-Stop brake pads, and new Campy Record long cage rear derailleur on the Paramount, bought some photo background paper, and took some pictures last week.

    It's a great ride.

    That is gorgeous! Is that the original gearing? It looks like 52-47-36 up front and 14-30 in back.

    Thanks, luker! The photo background paper is inexpensive and makes one helluva difference.

    Thanks for the pics, Scooper. Is this the Paramount you drove to SoCal to pick up? It certainly is one bee-yoo-tee-full machine, and absolutely worth the drive.

    Yes; it's the one. Thanks!

    The guy I bought it from was a teenager working in his dad's Schwinn dealership when he bought the bike new in 1972. He's a factory certified Schwinn mechanic, and had maintained the bike himself over the years. It's all original and looks like it left the factory yesterday. The chrome is perfect. I was absolutely stunned when I first saw it in the flesh.

    I'm glad I drove down to pick it up; I'd heard horror stories about bikes being damaged during shipping and didn't want to risk that happening. Besides, I had a chance to meet and connect with the owner.

    Scooper,

    Beautiful bike. Gorgeous lugs, and I really dig the simple Schwinn Paramount label--why did they stop using that one!

    What do you have under the seat? It looks like a spare tubular tire, but you said you had clinchers on there, right?

    And the wheels were originally 27", right? I'm surprised you had enough height adjustment for the brake pads.

    The saddle wedge has a patch kit, a couple of tire levers, Allen wrench multi-tool, and a combination wrench set, but no spare tube. The original owner switched from 27" to 700c tubular wheels, and I did the switch from 700c tubulars to clinchers.

    The reach adjustment on the brakes is at the limit, but they work great.

    Beautiful!!

    I am curious about your Record rear derailleur. I was interested in using a current record der. on a couple of my otherwise "period" bikes with 5 and 6 speed clusters. My LBS which is a VERY experienced large volume Campy dealer said that it would work fine in friction (natch!) but that the lower limit screw wouldn't go in far enough to prevent shifting off the lowest cog. Is this true in your case, or did you find a work around? I like the look of the alloy der. like you have on your (sweet) ride as it looks like an homage to the early super record.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Your LBS is absolutely correct. My workaround was to replace the lower limit screw with a longer one with two nuts on the inside end. The nuts hit the limit ledge when the chain is on inside cog and the screw is adjusted properly.

    I had to file down the screw head to the same diameter as the original.

    Nice bike, but that modern rear derailleur, the seatpost bag and lock, and the bright orange brake pads totally ruin it.
