Hi all, last week was pretty cool, found a yardsale $10 69 Paramount P10 on Wednesday, and Thursday snagged a 73 Paramount P15 discovered on Craigslist by CV-6. The 73 is the most greasy bike I have ever worked on, and it has been poorly painted with a brush. But the chrome is all good and I'm going send it to Waterford for paint.
That leads to one question, I believe the bike was originally white, do you guys think painting it a different color would lower the value? I don't intend to pay the $50 for the provenance report, but that would show the bike as the wrong color. If I ever sell it I would be up front with the fact that it's a repaint anyway, I just wonder if changing the color might discourage some buyers.
My other question is does anyone know how long the bottom bracket spindle should be for a Campy Record Triple? I'm guessing around 120, 121 from the fact that the previous owner had a Shimano BB with a 115, shifted about 6mm to the drive side (see pics LOL!).
