Non original drivetrain and rims. Still contemplating what I'm gonna do with this one as the front triple is a bit wonky shifting and I don't think I need a 24 tooth ring. Leaning towards keeping the rear Sachs Huret eco duopar derailleur and maybe just replacing the cranks with the standard Nuovo Record that came with it. Thoughts?

Nice! Maybe also a Nuovo Record front derailleur to go with the appropriate crank set. Your plans sound good. Welcome to the chrome Paramount club!

Lots of room for tires and fenders. Id be tempted to keep the 24. But i am weak.

Beautiful find! Great for you and for one more chrome Paramount being loved, enjoyed and ridden into its coming 50th birthday.

I'd say you have a good plan unless you need a lower gear than the 42T NR double will allow. It looks as if the rear freewheel is a 13 or 14T-30T (maybe a 31T or 32T) 5 speed Regina Oro. Suntour made a 34T and 38T sprocket which fits on a Perfect, ProCompe, New Winner, Winner and Winner Pro bodies, which could help if you just run the NR double. The Suntour freewheels can also be found in Ultra 6 speed spacing which helps when you run such a low gear. The Huret Eco Duopar can handle the 38T if you decide to go that low.
