Paramount/GIOS/Masi score

Last weekend was very, very good to me...

Paramount: Great color, anyone know what it's called? Excellent condition w/perfect chrome





GIOS: Full pantograph, no mileage and still has all original build tags attached






Masi: Dura Ace w/Campy brakes and a few blems here and there

Holy wow!!!

Yeah I agree with lotek. You suck.

The only way you can now redeem yourself is to give me the Gios.

Our local "retro" bike store also has zero-mileage, circa 1980's Italian bicycles with the build tags still on them. They cost, however, around $3000.

Gorgeous - I love the Paramount though I'll take any of them if you are giving me one.

What is the story - where did you find them - all from the same owner?

Quick reply with details to come:

I actually purchased 4 bikes last weekend but did not get a chance to photograph the 4th bike, a near mint Dave Tesch/California built Masi Gran Crit w/Record/Super Record mix. The Paramount and Gran Crit were purchased from the same owner and the other 2 from different folks.
Masi 3v from Seattle, Gios from Miami FL, Paramount/Gran Crit in my backyard- Astoria,OR.(I live just west of Portland, OR)
3 were Craigslist finds(both Masi's and the Paramount) and the other from a good connection I buy from time to time.
Total cost for all 4 bikes- Less than $2500, like I said, it was a really, really good weekend.

Thanks for the looks and compliments.

**** you.

Enjoy them, you're vying for best vintage collection on here. That's definitely weekend-catch of the year.

The Gios is the real catch, IMHO.

Beautiful bike, with the 'penny' fork crown and all original pantographed parts.
I'd hazard to guess you could make back your entire investment by selling that one bike.

Will we see any of these on a popular auction site any time soon? They appear to be my size, or close to it.

Yeah the GIOS is insane, I couldn't ride it and I couldn't justify keeping it for display... I would put it on ebay and send it off in tears.

Wow beautiful! I will likely never see any of those bikes around here in even poor condition, let alone as pristine as your's.

If that Paramount was my size ... well ... well, there's just no telling what I would do ...

That is my favorite bike in my favorite color. Schweet!!

Congrats on it and the other fine finds.
