1938 Schwinn Paramount on St. Louis Craigslist

I saw this on Craigslist yesterday and thought it was pretty cool and worth passing on. Not sure what they want for it but it looks pretty nice. I however am no expert.

Already torn to shreds on the Craigslist Finds thread - owner has the gall to claim original paint. Full of BS.

Currently listed on eBay and bid up to $1600.
At least there, the owner says he/she doesn't know if the paint is original.

Thats just crazy. On this website the owner says that its restored by the previous owner. http://velospace.org/node/4359zy.

Its obviously repainted and decaled. Maybe the owner won it in a poker game or something. Or took it in trade for a car,boat, who knows. Saw some where that hes looking for $25 G's. Its a Wastyn Paramount, one of the firsts.
