1985 Schwinn Parmount - Minneapolis local sale - $300

Edit 11-21-202 - SOLD! To @mb33

He drove quite a ways to pick this up, and seemed pretty stoked to get it. The Paramount has a new home.



Edit 11-16-2020. Haven't really had time to try to sell this, but no interest @ $800. Maybe $300? I need to get rid of this, and I'm tired of seeing it knowing I can't ride it.



Picked this up a few years ago - my first ever full Dura-ace bike. Now I can't ride it, so I'm trying to find a new home for it. I'm looking to do a local sale, not interested in dealing with shipping.

Needs a little TLC, I haven't done anything to it since I bought it, other than ride it 3x. I'm guessing it has low miles - it appears even the shifter cables are original.

56 CM frame, Columbus tubing, Dura-ace 6-speed, uniglide chain. I have a new in box 8-9-10 speed Ultegra rear hub I'd include if you want to update the drive train. A bit hard to get a 6-Speed dura-ace cog these days

I bought one very similar to this brand new in 85' and kept it for over a decade. It is a wonderful bike, GLWS.

Thought I'd start local. I've sold on Craiglist, but never messed with Ebay.
