    Schwinn/Paramount Series 90 PDG Before pic heavy

    Some of you may have heard the story of Mark Reynolds. He was killed by a mountain lion at Whiting Ranch in Cali around 10 years ago. We went to college together and were fraternity brothers. He is the person who got me into cycling. Anyway back in college he had a bike almost just like this one. I saw it on Craigs list and had to have it. A bone stock Paramount Series 90 pdg Mountain bike with the Red/White/Blue paintjob. It has Suntour XC Pro shifters, derailures, crankset, peddles, brake levers, bottom bracket, and Hubs laced to Araya Rm 17 rims . Tioga Avenger headset and Diacompe 986 Cantilever brakes. Ritchey Handlebars and Seatpost. Here are the before pics. I will post the "after" pics when finished cleaning it up. I then hope to make it out to Whiting and ride it up to his memorial bench.

    I have a soft spot for mountain bikes. That's a great example. Excited to see how it turns out.

    Very nice Paramount with the team colors. Are you going to just rebuild it and freshen it up or rebuild it with more newer parts?

    Freshen it up while maybe adding some period correct "trick" parts. I figure I will strip everything off the frame and clean, polish, grease and rebuild any relevant parts. I like to leave the newer stuff on newer bikes.
