I found one on Craigslist and the person claims it was made by Waterford. He says it's about a 1995. Do you know if there are any distinguishing marks to validate this?

Thanks!

But that doesn't really answer the question. A bike built in Sept of 1994 (good link BT) woul dhave been a 1995 model so...maybe.

Context. Try it.

If the rig is made of Reynolds 753, it's probably the real deal.

I'd also check the serial number.

Short answer- theres a "w" in the serial number. My Waterford paramount has a sticker just above the bottom bracket on the seat tube that reads "Schwinn Precision" and "Reynolds" under the "P" Paramount logo. It does not have the typical Reynolds tubing sticker.

There have been some recent threads on the Waterford Paramounts in Classic and Vintage-
including mine- https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...389&highlight=
