Fresh out of the shop for photos of the new left brake lever. Still short a hood (and for that matter, the lever) for the right.
Getting closer and closer to that red Velox tape
Sorry - the steel is crunchy, the paint is leaded, and the tires rubbery. Not such a good meal
Kurt, those Prugnat lugs are really growing on me. Beautiful bike!
I like the Prugnat lugs best on the chrome Paramounts.
1971 Paramount P-13 Chrome
1973 Paramount P-15 Opaque Blue
1973 Gitane Tour De France
1974 Raleigh Professional
1991 Waterford Paramount
Count me in on the Prugnats - how ironic I just got my Prugnat-lugged '68 put together this past weekend. Like yours, mine is awaiting red bar tape. I hemmed and hawed about whether to go with red, because it's such a cliche, but darn it, it's my bike and I'm the one who'll spend the most time looking at it. I sold a pair of those levers at the Westminster swap, or I'd gladly have sent you one gratis.
(No such thing as too many chrome Paramount pics ... )
