    It appears to be an early track bike (track rear fork ends and fork crown not drilled) that's been modified with a second rear bridge (both drilled for brakes), probably to take wheels with 27" road rims as well as 622 tubular rims. The fork dropouts look original. P138 would be ~1947.

    That's one very rough Paramount atmo.

    Is that a pre-war model?
    The above comment is entirely my delusional ramblings, and not those of my family, friends, past and future employers, the Academy of Motion Pictures, or any of my other personalities.

    circa 1947 (just post-war) according to the Paramount Registry. It was probably built by Emil and/or Oscar Wastyn.

    The seller totally botched the appearance/readability of the listing.

    This is the first Paramount is a long while that I like the look of. It is going to need some serious help, and serious money to make it "correct" though.
