WTB Paramount frameset

Hey all,

I am in the market for a 24 inch frame paramount. Early 70s, Chrome lugs with original fork. Must have perfect chrome but not perfect paint. This bike will be sent to Waterford to be repainted Campus Green! The frame also must be set up for the campy brake option. I do not want to put long reach center pulls on it or a drop bolt.

If you have something that I might be able to use let me know

JJ

Here's a '67 on eBay that ends in 3 days. So far the price is reasonable. https://www.ebay.com/itm/33318430219...84.m1436.l2649

As for the Campy brakes, I think that as long as you use regular reach calipers and 700c rims you should be OK.

Nice! Although when I look at the head tube, it looks more like a 63cm/25" frame...

Price might be ok but check out the shipping.

Yikes is right! That's about three times what it should be.

You can't pack and ship a bike for $40.

I've shipped bike for around $55 - $60 thru bike flights, depending on where they went. Figure around $5 - $10 for packing materials and that's $65 - $70... approx. 1/3 of the quoted shipping charge. If the seller wants to go through a bike shop for packing it would total approx. $100+/-.

Must be the location, 'cause it's showing me $120 for shipping on that bike. That's more than I would charge, but for a complete bike it's not the worst I've seen...
