Yeah it's nice, but I don't like the "make me an offer" crud. How are we supposed to know what he wants, I assume he is looking for a high number as he seems pretty aware of what he has.

Agreed. It's pretty sketchy.

That's the same one that was being discussed in this thread - it's on eBay:

https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...amount-on-eBay

I don't particularly care for the idea of a Kool Lemon Paramount that's been turned into an all-chrome job. I'm on the verge of calling this one a reverse Drew - especially with all those touring braze-ons, on a revised-geometry P13, no less.

-Kurt

P.S.: Not that it makes a bit of difference, but I own the fork off of #K72331. Quite a few frames for a single month.

Oh, and for the record, I think this takes the cake for the wildest modernized Paramount - #L72309:



That's what I call an Ed Roth Paramount. I almost regret the fact that I never considered buying it. It wasn't cheap, but not expensive either.

-Kurt

And it a '73 not a '72. I'm assuming October production of the frame would make it a '73. As for finding a better chrome example........please, the one I sold on ebay was nicer.

That one is also being discussed on the looking for ebay/CL thread...

I'm just curious why not being chrome originally hurts it? I wouldn't think much worse of that than I would a repaint, and I actually like the modifications that were made.

The seller is a bit of a jerk by the way.
