Check the serial number. What's 250 pounds in real money? $386 U.S. dollars? I think that's borderline expensive depending on the overall condition. The extra parts are nice to have, Campy high flange hubs are $100 U.S. (89 Euro) (65 pound)

Has it been fixified? Does it have all the original braze-ons?

The only braze on (which does not really count ) is the tear mech hanger. At what age did Shwinn start putting shifter and front mech braze ons on?

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Currently going for $289 - $375 on the Bay as bare frames (including some repainted) so with the wheels this is at or under market value.

If I had the $ I'd go for it, always wanted an older Paramount.

The Nervex lugs appear to be the appropriate ones. Rims OTOH are not period-correct, assuming they're clincher types (70s era Paramounts used tubulars). Considering that those bikes/frames command (and commanded, back in the day) a premium, the price doesn't seem that far out of line. Paramounts are far more common here in the USA than in Europe.

Rear hub is high flange, front is low. Looks to be six cogs on the freewheel, if that matters.
