    +1 - That's worked well for me to prep the tubes for touch up. I know a lot of people like the model paint, while others fall in the nail polish camp. I find model paint to be too soft. It's also...

    Gazelle was able to decipher mine and provide a date. If you're interested, an email did the trick for me.

    This is my take away also. My 1966 Paramount, at nearly half a century old, is one of the best rides I've ever experienced. By contrast, a 1984 Centurion Turbo was uber-light weight but felt noodly...

    I do not have that on my 1989 Paramount. Have you tried calling Waterford to inquire? Richard Schwinn tends to answer the phone and could likely shed some light on it.
