I found this beat paramount frame at the OC swap meet a couple weeks back.
We got there late and this was waiting, like baitin a fish.
There were reasons why,
there is a small dink on the top tube
and a nasty stomach-turning crimp on the seat post tube,
probably from a frame-stand-clamp or something.
The price was decent (to me) since the frame looked straight, and came with the fork, still had original metallic green paint and chrome nervex's were so nice.
So like a pound puppy I brought it home.
(I had a set of campy lambda/ypsilon rims with 25's fortunately for the shots)
I like gears, and would like a somewhat era'd build-up.
The frame # is E73237, so may of '73.
Also to note,
there are no rack mount holes, so its more of the non-touring road bike version.
Can you guys help me out with what pieces to look for to put it back together?
There seems to be a mismatched group of parts on paramounts i've studied- campagnolo, weinmann ...
so please point me in the general direction.
The only real change i'd like is to keep the 700 campy wheelset, they're straight and I really like the shallow V,
so what brakes, long range, short range?
I have a too nice '73 schroder full campy nuovo record/cinelli equipped road bike,
and a late70/early80's campania phil-hub/sugino/suntour/diacompe equipped super-beater drillium'd road bike,
so this i'd like as a bike in-between,
with 2nd hand ebay parts a little scratched to satisfy my drillium addiction.
(yeah yeah - B or C grade frames and parts are good for that!)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
