The savings will help when replacing all the down-spec parts that are on it now that the stock stuff has been harvested..

This one went fast. When I talked to the guy an hour ago he already had 4 or 5 calls. Fortunately he told me about the other callers when I was at his house picking it up. Thanks for the heads up @philpeugeot.

My usual disclaimer: I have no dog in this fight.

If you are looking for a pretty much complete French group, there is a seller on eBay that has several to offer at what I think is a reasonable price. He also comes up with other interesting items from time to time. I have dealt with this seller and had good communication and prompt shipping.

I like the color, too. I've always liked orange bikes, which is probably early imprinting. My first "ten-speed" was a Pearlescent Orange Le Tour III.

I'm concerned that the bike has been misrepresented, though. Certainly you could get a Paramount in Pearlescent Orange (or any Schwinn color) but that sure looks like a '77-'78 Volare to me:

Hi Jeff -

You may be right. I haven't had a chance to really look into the bike yet. The paint was a crappy repaint (paint on the chrome lugs in spots), so the color is not a clue (unless of course they chose to spray the same color). In taking a quick look at the Volare, that would be a cool bike, so I don't think I would be upset (especially at the $150 price point) if that's what I have. Without any investigation I am leaning towards it being older than the mid 70's and not a Volare since it does not have any braze-ons, and the harder (for those w/o the right tools/know how) components (Headset, BB, Crank - no date code) are all Campy and their is no sign of any DA. But I wouldn't be surprised if I find out it is something completely different.

Since there was a question in my mind on the bike and how to identify it along with how to build it I am planning to start a thread on it.

Mike

Classic Specialized Stumpjumper - $200 (O'fallon)

St. Louis Stumpjumper

Recently rebuilt classic Stumpjumper with 27.5" wheel conversion. New wheels, new narrow/wide chainring, new Specialized Saddle for this build. The frame was internally treated with Frame Saver rust prevention and is very solid. Great for gravel bike use or as a commuter bike. It shifts smoothly and the brakes are firm.
