77 Paramount - handlebar wrap...vendor?

So...I am re-doing a 77 Paramount P 10, and originally thought the handlebar wrap was a simple cloth tape, with adhesive on the underside of the tape. But, what I found, is that the underside is actually a vinyl material, with no adhesive material, and the top side is a sort of cloth material. And upon removing the original tape, the bar underneath had no pitting, oxidation, blemishes, nothing, almost like new. I'd like to replace it with the original type, but have yet to find the vendor. Any ideas? I've looked at a few Cinelli wraps but they don't seem to be correct. Thanks...

Search eBay for Hunt or Flexon.

I know of the tape you are referring to. It wasnt Schwinn original equip. I think Cool Gear marketed a tape that was sort of suede on one side and cushion vinyl on the underside. Long out of production.

Cloth tape was pretty standard, Paramounts could have come with Hunt-Wilde as well, oh and pics or it didn't happen.

No hunt wilde tape here, not like any I've ever seen anyway...not cloth either, definitely vinyl backside with no adhesive, suede topside... looks like it stopped any moisture/sweat from soaking thru and corroding the handlebar underneath.

As mentioned above, looks like Cool Gear "The Tape" to me, they had "The Seat" also that had pockets of ski boot foam at the sit bones as well as a tension screw. Both worked pretty well for me bitd.
