To all eBay vintage nuts...

BACK OFF THE PARAMOUNT DECAL SET!!!

I've been looking for one VERY hard to the point of calling all Schwinn shops in hopes they had some left from their days as a Paramount dealer. No such luck, one finally comes on on eBay, and my rusty Paramount can finally be repainted properly. I hear it will be 7 years of bad luck and very bad Karma if anyone but me wins the auction

The only time I have ever seen a Capo Modell Campagnolo on eBay (1960 30th anniversary frameset only, in rough original condition), one other guy bid against me. I finally backed off and let him win it, only to find out my "opponent" was a friend and fellow Capo owner, whom I had met and with whom I have shared numerous emails over the years. If I had known his identity sooner, I could have saved him a few bucks by not bidding.
