Mostly red Peugeot Aspin a guy gave me on the street a few months ago just because I said "hey thats nice". Guess he was about to bring it to the junkyard or the charity bike collecting place. Was almost like new.

Yeah, believe me, while in this part of Germany its (it was at least in the past few year) quite common to see still working things including bikes on the street with a tag 'Zu verschenken' (~take it if you need it), such an example is by far not common at all. Especially if a dude tries to load it in the trunk, and just because you said "hey its nice" he gives it to you. I was puzzled for days. I like yours better for being lugged, but I have to say this is a nice one as well, and as said, it is almost like new.

Agreed, thank you.

Well Paramounts are IMHO the very pinnacle of American high end production and maybe my favorite.

The history, mystique, fame and the fact that they are just darn cool to me

The womens version is fairly rare although I am sure Schwinn made plenty of them by other standards but were probably a drop in the bucket for them.

I have been on the lookout for one for quite some time but was in no rush, waiting for a bargain, this was it.

Not really sure about any others, I know there were some great ones but maybe not in the numbers that make them pop up now.
.
American builders are the ones to look at, we have many that were very prolific, some not but did excellent work on what they did produce.

Jim Merz, Newlands (Strawberry), Mark DiNucci (still building again afaik), Dave Moulton, Bruce Gordon, Bill Davidson, Dave Levy (TiCycles), Joseph Aherne, Chris Igleheart, Tony Pereira, Ira Ryan, Sacha White (Vanilla), Albert Isentraut, Tim Neenan, Mitch Pryor, Rob Kamzelski and many, many more.

Many of these started or are here in PDX and again, this is a very small biased sample but most are legend in their own right.

Google is your friend and Paisley is a great story, he switched to MTB competition and never looked back, 60-65 Masters Champion 2018.

Don't think he builds anymore but has had a shop for over 40 years and is very well respected all the way around.

I knew the one I got was too small but it rides fantastic even with a worn out group on it and having sat for who knows how long.

It may go to my son if he can keep the bike he has now from being stolen like the half dozen or so before it, we'll see.

He's been doing a good job so far and was devastated when the Raleigh SC that we overhauled together before this one was stolen off the front of the bus.

palincss STUNNING. The more I see these touring bikes on these forums the more I am liking the way they look, especially with the drop down bars. Sporty but practical. The storage on the front really makes it.

1998 Cannondale F1000

Same spec bike, ridden by then-reigning XC World Champion Alison Sydor. I am having difficulty finding her to endorse it, so I had her Volvo Cannondale team mate Tinker Juarez verify build accuracy, by signing it off himself:

Thank you for the hint! This is definitely a well curated selection to give me a jumpstart. Long before I became a cyclist the American flyer represented the "beautiful US bike" to me, actually it is still an object of desire although most likely today it would not satisfy my cycling needs.
Later as a teenager with the first cheapo supermarket MTB I was marvelling at GTs Treks Cannondales in the local newspaper. Obviously these were just as unreacheable to everyday people in eastern europe back in the 90s like today a normal mid-class Mercedes without loans.... possible but not for the majority. Years later one brain-damaged day I have decided that I need a road bike and if so it has to be a "green" Bianchi what i bought next day, it gave me a decade long tunnel vision towards Bianchi only (for the first few years) and Italian only. I did not really care much about non Italian bikes (besides Masi and Confente) But now I see it will be an interesting journey to discover some nicer episodes in the history of US bike making.

You're welcome, anytime.

Ahh yes, the Bianchi Celeste fever, know it well myself, have an 81 SC not all original and a bit rough but it is a top of the line and has mostly original parts including panto stem and SP, Campy SR brakes, crank, FD and RD so its pretty good, 2 other lesser frames that may get built someday, all 3 Celeste.
