In my experience good complete Paramounts over a wide range of years are worth about $700. Those with triples and all chrome may be worth more as are pre-65 or so bikes. Of course anything pristine or extraordinary is more. This bike is a rider with what sounds like some non original parts. $500-550? Maybe less- The rings, hoods and most of all the paint all add up.

Joe Bender-Zanoni 55 Miles today out by Manchester, MI, sunny, breezy and a perfect 75 degrees as the leaves turn.
