My Team Schwinn Wheaties reproduction done!

Sourced this 88 Waterford Paramount about a year ago to do this and today itís complete! Painted by D and D Cycles in San Lorenzo, California and assembly by Tour Of Nevada City bike shop in Nevada City, California. Obviously I took some liberties as it has brifters (Shimano 8x2 7400 groupset) and larger handlebars but I wanted (for me) a more comfortable cockpit so made some changes.
Another change from original is use of clinchers rather than glue ons but Iíve lost any desire to use tubulars anymore.

Vintage/updated I suppose🤣

I like it a lot, but then I do have a soft spot for 1988 red, white, and blue high end Schwinns.

How much did the shop charge for the paint job, if you don't mind?
