Schwinn Paramount Chicago built.

Looking for a year and possible value estimate for this bike. Was given to me in the 80's. Rode it a ton then. Been in storage for the last 20+ years. Serial number is 37477 with no visible letters. Most parts are labeled campagnolo including a frame stamp on the right side rear fork area. Any ideas of the exact model and year built?

Impossible to tell without some pictures as condition matters. Make sure we get pictures of the drive side and some clear shots of the bike as well.

Main frame. The only other info I have is that the person that gave it to me was training to go to the olympics in it until he blew out his knee. I assume that was in the 70's but that is just a guess. I also remember something about triple T wide handlebars, and they look to be made in Italy but the manufacturer is covered up by grip tape. I'll try to get more/better Picts in the morning if it helps.

I think the '3' may be a lightly stamped 'B'. If that is the case the bike was built in Feb. of 1974 which looks appropriate for the paint and decals.

The serial number is B7477, which indicates the 77th frame built in February 1974. That makes it a '74 P13-9 racer model with what appears to be a 26" frame. Unfortunately it looks like several of the original components are missing including possibly the wheels, derailleurs, saddle, and shifters. Higher resolution pics of the bike and components would be helpful. So far I'd estimate a value of $500 to $750. Here are the catalog pages for that model:

Seat and wheels are definitely not original as I remember changing them in the 80's. However the shifting levers are there and original at least when I got it. I'll get some closer pics with better quality early next week. Thanks for the help.
