Paramount in Southern Oregon
A word of caution to any out of state buyers (which the owner says there are few interested). I looked at this bike today, and although still pretty nice and not horribly overpriced it does have some problems that owner (who plays completely dumb) will not tell you about.
1. It's not a touring model, and does not have a triple crank or bar-ends (although he told me it did over the phone).
2. It has been "touched up" with spray paint along the whole top-tube and upper fork legs. And by "touch up" I mean completely re-painted in this instance. I could not figure out why the paint looked "wrong" to me as the down-tube still has the original paint and decals but the finish was obviously wrong in other spots. After pressing the owner he finally said he may have "touched it up a little". Not sure why a bike that supposedly was only ridden a few times then hung up for 26 years would need that amount of touch up? Again, this guy does not "remember" anything.
3. It has the obligatory clamp-on kickstand that has probably left some damage to the stays but he would not let me remove it to check.
Anyway, it looks like a mid 70's model (I did not write down the serial number). About a 22". The Campy stuff is all present and in good shape. Original Weinmann 27" rims. Short Cinelli 1A and Mod 64 bars. And a clean Unicanitor "buffalo" saddle. Still not a bad deal for an end user. But with shipping, not so great and the paint would be a big dissapointment if you did not know about it.
If it had nice original paint or had been a racer with a Campy brakeset I would have bought it for his asking price. But as it was, it was a total waste of a couple of hours and half a tank of gas to look at it.
