    My experience is that if I am at the point of asking the question whether to buy or not, invariably I buy. I just can't live with the nagging question going over and over in my head.

    Hi Ed, your dad's Paramount looks beautiful. You'll have to clean yours up and post it sooner, rather than later, and that's an order - hahaha.

    I think your heading says it all - "Unidentified Vintage Track Frame". My gut feeling is that's just what it will remain - unidentified. The lugs are Nervex pro's and top of the heap items they were...

    Hi Vollmerpants, If you change the stem you will have to change the bars with the stem. It's pretty impossible to separate the two with the leather bar wrap on the bars. Don't cut it off what ever...
