1975 Paramount Track Bike

Since I am failing miserably in my efforts to avoid bike shopping while home from work, I wanted to humbly request some expert opinions on the value of this bike. Looks like a June 74 serial #, but the decals and chrome socks and stays peg it as a '75. These are the only two pictures. The bike will not come with that wheelset, instead it will come with an unpictured 650b wheelset, which might actually be of more interest to me since I have another track wheelset hanging in the garage.

Pretty. It's possible the frame was built in June '74 for the '95 model year. '95s likely would have been shipping by late Aug or early Sept.

Thank you @Bianchigirll but sadly, it appears I missed out on it. Probably for the best.

Don't worry you'll get a second chance next week when it is listed as a rare 1930 fixie for three times the price it just sold for.

Mid 70's Paramount track bikes, save for a very few, used that simplified crown, a big letdown for me. I liked the earlier design with the side window.
