1989 Schwinn Paramount Waterford Built

1989 Schwinn Paramount Waterford built Columbus SLX 53cm. (Frame, Fork, Headset only)
Candy red, incredible condition. Paramount branded Stronglight headset.
I have emails with Waterford confirming it is their built frame.
Serial Number: 530BLWG 89030

$700 shipped










There is a pic of every mark on this frame.

Thanks for looking.

Color looks identical to my Paramount from that time frame except mine has a fastback setup for the seat stay.

Wow I had no idea these were worth so much.

Not surprising as I can personally vouch from ownership of a dumpster save pearlescent white one that these bikes ride very nicely.

Someone threw a Waterford Paramount in the dumpster???? Thank goodness you rescued it.
I paid $350 for a minty frame with a Dura Ace headset, and drove from Dayton to Chicago to pick up.
When I got back, the people at the LBS were like, "dude, what a cool score". and " I know someone that will give you $$$ for it".

It's amazing what people throw out. Meet 'Dumpster Sally':



Skil 8.25" worm drive. She don't stop for anything. All I did was replace the cord.

*Apologies for the thread drift. Nice bike.

Of course it seen some better days but here it is after I went through cleaning it a bit up.
It's a sporty cruiser now.


Everything besides stem/bar/saddle/seatpost came with it.
Took it all apart and everything was in pretty good condition. All it needed was some cleaning and adjustment. Don't get me started on the dropout adjusters, I had to use PB blaster to unseize them.
Has a full tri-color drivetrain and levers but for some reason it was found with single pivot 600's. I guess the original owner got another bike and stole the calipers from it.
