Very cool survivor, and rather tempting, but I'm in scale-down mode with a large silver road bike for sale myself.

Do you know if those goofy finned brake pads go all the way back to 1974, or are they a later add-on?

I don't know when exactly the Scott-Mathauser pads were introduced but I think they are period correct.

I have a road test article of the Scott-Matthausers from 1976 and seems to indicate they were introduced in '75.

^^^ Close enough in my book. Did this Paramount originally come with 700c tubulars and center pull brakes like the Raleigh International? Gosh, every time I see a beautiful Paramount like this it strikes me how similar they were configured to the Raleigh International of that same era.

I don't believe the brake pads are original

@septacycles the decals appear to be from '76 or later: Schwinn Paramount P10-9

I recommend posting close-up pics of the serial number on the LH dropout and the headbadge. Best of luck with the sale!
