Schwinn Paramount sizing?


What size frame would you guess? I think its a P-13. Was listed on Offer-Up for absurdly low price. I was too slow to respond. Any Chicago area forum members get this one?

Probably 26" CTT, if not 27".

EDIT: Looks about the same as merziac's.

If you look back at the old catalogs, I think there was a time when frame sizing changed. I am sure I had a 26" frame at one time. 19/21/23/25 is the modern standard, but some frames came in with 24 and 26 inch

25-26"
Schwinn shops always appeared to have the bigger the bike, the bigger the man
