    1940 Paramount track bike on craigslist (not mine)

    San Luis Obispo is a college town, so it won't last long. Frame appears to be 22" or 23".

    I agree. Crank and stem appear to be original, but the wheels have low flange Schwinn hubs. Seller says he has a Schwinn high flange rear hub, but not one for the front wheel.

    Thread creep, but I finally found a pair of correct original Schwinn Paramount high flange hubs (90mm front O.L.D. and 110mm rear O.L.D.) for mine. I'll be building the wheels with the wooden Ghisallo rims.

    not easy to find, there was one at t-town this past fall but the guy wouldnt sell it. Probably for the better... if i had bought it i probably would have been spending another $2k this bike just to put a hubset togther, really would not have had a choice if fate was steppin in like that.

    Seller here, I'll answer any questions any one has. Yes i only have the rear high flange hub. The wood wheel set I have are the low flange hubs, which where an option to buy from schwinn that year, but obviously not the stock wheels.
