Good show that you put together and I was tempted to go on watching more than the two that I just watched!

Cool that you ended up with that Paramount after seeing it hanging all those years.

What a great find! Usually I see bikes and think they should be ridden but If I had that in my possession, I couldn't bring myself to ride that either. I particularly like those gold Delta brakes.

I see people on both sides of the fence on this issue. I really would like to ride it. However, since I have one in the same size with dura ace on it there is no mystery on how it would ride. I have a special place for it in the new bikecave.

It's a beautiful bike. Just line up the Veloflex logo over the valve. Lol

After seeing your collection and builds I try my best to make my bikes as clean as possible. I love your work.

I find this interesting and fun to look at but would never buy in.
Although I should have bought a 50th anniv group decades ago.

wonder who bought the 80th anniv sets on sale when they were soon to be outdated?

I got a Lot of 3 Paramounts at an incredible price. I had to buy it. I love that it's unique but in 88 I would of put a 50th group on it. The C record group was so overrated. The brakes weren't great, The shifting absolutely sucked! However, like an old car, you don't buy it for it's performance. Thanks for watching!
