FS: 1972 Chrome Paramount P13-9

This is a 1972 Schwinn Paramount P13-9 (v2) in chrome. The frame is 24".

Sadly, I cannot keep this awesome bike. Hopefully it can find a new home with someone here.

I do believe it is in all original condition, except for the missing brake hoods. The original hoods were rotten/melted and looked terrible. I removed them. I did purchase reproduction Campagnolo world logo gum brake hoods. I will include the replacement hoods in this sale. Here is a link to exact hoods I have: For Sale | Velostuf

A few points that suggest originality:
  • tires are Clement Campionato del Mondo sew ups, which were an upgrade option on the 1972 Paramount order form (Campy side pull brakes were an upgrade on the order form too)
  • the mileage count on the Joseph Lucas odometer that came on the bike is 303
Certainly both the tires and odometer could have been installed well after the bike was purchased and broken in, but they are promising evidence.

The bike is in fantastic overall condition. It does look like a low mileage survivor.

Serial #: L72 207

There is some light surface rust at the bottom bracket. I believe it may polish out. For now, I have treated the frame surface with Fluid Film, which should stop that little bit of rust.

I am happy to have a phone call with anyone seriously considering the purchase.

I would really prefer to sell locally and avoid shipping. But I will take it to my LBS for packing and shipping if that is what works out.

Price: $1200 + packing fee at my LBS (I think they charge $50) + actual shipping . I am in Charleston, SC (29407).
