Schwinn Paramount Fuscia 50th Anniversay 1988










I thought I'd seen every color!!

1988 Waterford Paramount with mostly Super Record. The headset is Schwinn's go to Stronglight A9 and the brake levers are Chorus. It has tubulars (bang head and break something)

1988 was Paramounts 50th anniversary thus the badging....this is not one of the special anniversary edition models.

Jim, I'm pretty sure that color is called "Strawberry"...

The 1988 Paramount colors were Crystal Blue, Emerald, Ferrari Red, Icy White, Metallic Black, and Strawberry.

That's a looker Jim...paint looks original. I think they applied the decals to all of the 88s, so I guess it's a color they had available, but rarely saw selected. Tubulars are wonderful

You're welcome
And I can say without a doubt that pics don't do this bike justice, as good as it looks here it looks twice as good in real life.
