My best friend has a 1964 Paramount track tandem that was built for the 1964 Olympics. It came with the 1" pitch chain and Campy cranks. It still has the original lime green paint and decals. I hope to get some pics for the CR website if there is some interest as this is a rare Paramount. I suppose the setup was felt to be stronger for 2 strong riders. Cheers, Keith Kessel
