92 Schwinn Series 5 PDG

I recently sold mine in So. CA for $380. The bike was probably 8 out of 10 on condition, paint and components. It was on the market a few months.

Hmm, exhuming a 12-year-old thread must've inspired this guy to sell his bike today:

https://madison.craigslist.org/bik/d...128485954.html

1992 Schwinn Paramount PDG Series 5 Road Bike *54cm* *Excellent Shape* - $500 (Madison)





First one I ever recall seeing sold here. No country of origin indicated at the bottom of the head tube. And at the risk of falling off a high horse (or more likely a high bar stool), five Franklins is steep for a 105-equipped bike.

(Dunno if he's selling the driveway and garage door too, since they take up more of the frame than the bike )

I sold the bike 5 or 10 years ago and never recorded the serial number but it was for sure Chinese made. Roger
