1973 Schwinn Paramount pictures

I won this from an ebay auction. It was a local pick up only which I think greatly improved my chances. I drove 230 miles to get it but think it was worth it.

Nice; I'm really jealous of the campy tools, (oh yeah the bike too).

I was watching that, here's the listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/221236868955

I think you did real well considering all of the extras and original components included. The seller might have received much more had they been willing to ship.

Nice grab, for sure. I love chromed lugs, and that Campag. stuff's probably worth grabbing too.

You got a helluva deal. It looks like a museum piece, and the tool kit and other goodies are icing on the cake.

Congratulations.

You might be able to get that ding out of the top tube. Any bike frame repair place, even some builders, have the capability to clamp on a block and roll that puppy out. I just one rolled out of my Specialized Stumpjumper top tube in nearly the same area. My frame was dinged worse though.
Either that, or maybe you could fill the ding with pre-mixed bondo. Of course, that will ruin the paint job. Is it worth it?
