    I ♥ Flea Markets!

    This is what keeps me out of bed Sunday early mornings

    Spray painted Paramount with a mix of nice parts

    I like the Paramount.

    I am an idiot.

    That aside, it looks like a '77-79 P13-9, if those waterbottle cage mounts and braze-on shifters are original. The need for the drop bolt on the brake bridge doesn't add up on a P13 though, even though the lack of eyelets would suggest that it is a P13. What's the serial?

    Oh, no doubt, I love Super Corsas as much as the next guy, but there is something undeniably fun about ID'ing a Paramount that's been screwed around with...more times than Lady Chatterley, in this case.

    I don't even want to ask what you paid for those. It'll just make it worse. OK, what did you shell out?

    Nice finds. All I ever seem to see are overpriced straight-gauge junkers at best, or department store stuff at worst.

    Yep. Three piece hubs, alloy flanges either threaded or pressed onto a steel center section.
