Hello all

Short intro to say high before wading in. In Springfield Mo. Mostly am looking to find info about the in and outs getting a 73 paramount 25 inch frame ready to ride with upgraded components or keep it as is and just put it back on the road or maybe sell it as I am getting older and someone else might appreciate it.

It's been hanging on the hooks these pat 15 years with very little use so might be a tall order, I never liked the down tube shifters and thinking STI or something similar but I gather it is frowned upon to start hacking on these older bikes.

Be seeing y'all around so off I go to the vintage forums and make a few Inquiries .

*Drool* 73 paramount you say? The 50th anniversary paramount is way out of my price league and usual style of bikes but damn do I want it. Welcome aboard and come on over to classic and vintage!
