    Should I put aftermarket OMAS aluminum bits on the '72 Paramount?

    Dug these up today:







    I'm just not sure it suits it.

    Well we just need the pics of the parts, we know what the bike looks like

    But to answer your question, that would be a mismatch and waste of parts in my opinon. Save them for a cool weight-weenie build. Paramounts are tanks, and '72 is more of the home drillium era if you really want to go that route.

    Factory hot-rod parts are more mid to late 70's. Better for a SL Colnago, Gios, etc. that already has fairly light frame.

    The derailer could go into the spokes if the mounting bolt fails.

    That ring looks like it belongs on that frameset.

    P.S.: DD's warning has shaken me a bit on using that top bolt...

    Campagnolo used alloy bolts on the derailleur when ti went stupid expensive in 1979. I would be more concerned about the seat post fittings.

    I would also wait for a better subject like 1975 or later.
