1972 Chrome Paramount frame and fork

A few years ago, I bought a beautiful 1972 Schwinn Paramount from the original owner, a musician with the Chicago Cubs Dixieland band. The bike was simply mesmerizing, but the 24 inch size turned out to be a bit small for me, so I found a very nice 25 inch frame and swapped over the components as needed.

The build date of this Paramount is June 1972 with serial number F72183. The bottom bracket shell is stamped P2 which indicates this frame was built in Racine, Wisconsin by Don Mainlandís company, Pioneer Manufacturing.

The condition is close to perfect with just a couple of the tiniest imperfections. Some of the original decals were flaking, so those were replaced with exact duplicates installed precisely as original.

Iím asking $1000 or best offer plus shipping cost by your preferred shipper.

And here is something else. It was a bit heartbreaking to move the nice original components from this bike to the 25 inch frame. It is not in my nature to disrupt an original bike. I imagine I have some kindred spirits on the forum. If youíd like the complete bike and have a 1971-1972 Nuovo Record group to trade so I can use on my 25 inch Paramount, letís work on it. My preference would be to reunite the components as much as possible.

Thanks for thinking about it!

I forgot to mention this is the P13 “Professional Road Racing” model.In ticking down the dealer order form, it would be:
24 inch frame
42-52 sprockets front
14-26 sprockets rear
Brooks Professional saddle
Bottom bar controls
Campagnolo side pull brakes
chrome

The more I see chrome paramounts the more I think I may have to consider getting one....... only issues is S-1 sub equation to N+1 (but she likes my de rosa because it is a pretty red)

An update to this thread: I was able to, one by one, locate what I needed to build the blue 1971 Paramount frame, so I have all the original components back on this chrome Paramount. If you are interested in the complete bike, let me know. Thanks
