Schwinn Paramount, Tulsa-ish, $500

This is a super-secret Paramount listing for "Schwinn Bikes," with a featured picture of a mountain bike and very bad pics of both.
One of y'all may be able to identify the model. Early 70s. Looks like a Campagnolo drivetrain, but replacement levers and center pull brakes?

Standard Dia Compe/Wienmann brakes, Campys were optional, looks like it may have Schwinn Approved SunTour bar cons and saddle likely not original although you could get it any way you wanted from the factory or the dealer.

If you're thinkin about this, I would get after it, this is a great deal barring any life threatening issues.

I saw that and it's not a Comp, it's a Super Competition with a complete 531 F&F!
​​​​​​My Competition only has a 531 frame. But then Mr. Google says it's 3 hrs and 45 minutes drive. Looks my size to.....!🙄

Those of us who worked in Raleigh dealerships back then sold plenty of those Grand Prix bikes. Great-looking bike with Reynolds 531---easy sales pitch.

Over the years there have been a number of Bike Forums threads speculating about what the "Raleigh 555SL" tubing (and variants) that was labeled as such on Raleigh USA bikes might really be, with some arguing that it was Reynolds 531 that had been relabeled for some murky reason. You'd think that the presence of the Grand Prix in the lineup would have put that hypothesis to rest, but it didn't.
