1978 Schwinn Paramount

I'll bet most of you don't have one of these. Either do I for that matter. A friend just purchased this bike from the original owner for the grand sum of $ 75. I think the pedals alone are worth more than that. The rear Der. had a '73 stamp on it but the original bill of sale was dated 1978. Perhaps this bike spent many years hanging in a shop waiting to be ridden. I guess it has sat for a good number of years but now it is getting used a bit. Other than the rotten old tires and some funky shifting , this bike is pretty choice. The front wheel is mysteriously reason given by the seller. Odd, as the entire rest of the bike is stock.

I pray for deals like that, but my prayers go unanswered.
