Follow this link to a pic of my '89 Paramount! She is even the same color as yours! Mine is an 8 speed, and yes, she rides like a dream!! Been riding the '76 Paramount to work, but I am looking forward to putting ol' Blue back to work!!
Darn nice ride, Seely!!

Awesome, thanks. I love the decals on yours... much classier than the neon early 90's scheme going on mine. Are yours original?

Yes, those are original decals! The fellow that painted the frame several years ago managed to land a set of original decals for ol' Blue. She really does ride like a dream, and I love my mix of newer and older Ultegra parts. My other Paramount, which is a '76, has a real mix of parts!! The original Campy BB and cranks, Suntour long cage rear der, Dura Ace front der, Suntour bar end shifters and Scott Brakes! But, with the paniers and rack, she makes a great commuter during the winter when I have to carry extra clothes and so on. I really like the old classic bikes, but love my Paramounts!!
