Free Paramount!

Buddy gave me his 73 Paramount as a late birthday present recently.





Reading this and with a little confirmation from the Steel is Real Facebook group, I am confident in calling this a p10-9. S/N# M72255. This is what my buddy had to say, "Yea, it's a P10-9. The guy I bought it from worked at a Schwinn dealer in the 70s in Chicago.
He wanted the racing model, but this frame sat for over a year and the owner sold it to him cheap,
then he built it up with the Nuovo Record stuff from another Paramount but with the bar ends instead.
He unfortunately did not keep the original parts as part of the deal."

While doing a bit of re-assembly I hit a snag.




The clamps for the brake levers don't seem to be fitting. Tell me it ain't so! Any suggestions?
Better pictures to come!
