1973 Schwinn Paramount P-15

Unfortunately I’m listing my Paramount due to missed work from an injury. 23” frame, all original components. New cloth bar tape, cables and brake hoods. New Panaracer Pasela tires will be installed before shipping. Feel free to ask any questions or more pics. $1700 shipped + PayPal fees.

That's too bad about the injury and missing work. This is tempting even though I don't need another bike. I also have a '68 Paramount that I've never fixed up I need to sell if I buy this.

I hope you get better soon.
As far as the bike goes, we forget how rare it is to see one without the downtube all scratched up from a clamp on water bottle cage. Really nice, GLWS, and I hope that bike goes to someone who lives in the hills.

I've been out of the USA for a long time now. But I thought workers comp was set up for exactly this reason. Am I missing something?

Workers comp is set up on base pay, I make double that while working. So it’s definitely a huge cut in pay.

I want to thank everyone for the kind words and also for not buying this. I was putting the new tires on and my wife came out to the shop and told me not to sell it if I really didn’t want to. So it’s no longer for sale.

This is great news, made my day.

When the better half tells you to keep the Paramount, love her and the bike.

A more resounding endorsement, there could not be.

Thanks all, we’ll see how it goes. I’ll definitely keep my wife but if I need to the bike will go. Some things are more important.

Sloar great news and glad to see the support from your wife. She sounds like a wonderful person to acknowledge the importance of your beautiful bike, even under such hard decisions. I hope you are able to recover soon and get back on track. I am self employed and when I am sick or injured it hurts…bad. I too have support from my wife even though she teases me about my obsession with my bikes. Hang in there, Joe

Hope your work luck gets better soon - marriage luck seems to be doing OK.

Gorgeous bike. If anybody has a vintage paramount with a large-ish frame (63 cm or so) I might have some spare cash in a few weeks.
