    Incidentally, since you took the trouble to photograph that Professional for me, here are some photos for you:

    '70 Schwinn Paramount P13 (my latest 'baby' - bringing her back to stock):


    As I found it:

    I believe the '70 Mark II's were limited in production number - the decal obviously refers to the number of the bike in the production run.

    Eclectic collection, no doubt. I recognize the BSA Paratrooper folding machine and the Sears Spaceliner.

    Once saw a poorly-maintained, all-chrome men's Spaceliner come into one of the LBS's once. Springer fork and all. Pitiful sight to see it like that, but nice to know it was still around.

    No, the International was coming with a Campagnolo NR drivetrain in '70 as well. The Pro was the only one to receive any limited-edition status, and not for the reason of componentry - just for the reason of making it limited edition, I gather.

    Limited Edition, the marketing guys were hard at work even back then.

    Where in Southern California are all these bikes?

    The shop interior does not look familiar, but that is not saying much.

    Wow, what a collection! I guess now I'll have to take pictures of the late '30s Paramount at my LBS.

    I delivered papers on one of these (in red). The local Rexall drugstore had a contest, and another kid won it.
    A few years later, I bought it for $10 when I got a paper route. Thanks for the memory.

    Does the Raleigh Pro have an asking price? What size is it? -- looks like a 24-1/2 or 25-1/2" frame.

    Looks like a 23.5" to me. Doubt if it is any taller.

    I think there were 500 of these made. I'm lucky to have #133 and #451. My father bought #451 as a frameset in 1971. I raced on it during high school. I just got #133 a couple of months ago.
    I found a reference that Raleigh made over 700,000 other bikes in 1970.




    Here's me on 451 at the 1974 East Coast Regional Time Trials. I just missed the cut to go to the Nationals.

    GMS is exactly correct. Only 500 of those made.

    DUC_TAPE - do you work in a bike shop or a museum?
    In search of what to search for.
