Paramount experts: Take a look at these photos. The serial number F653 dates this to June 1966. P-15(?) Chrome with full Nervex lugs including BB. Interesting mix of parts, betting that the original owner added, modified and obsessed over the mix. Frame is a 53cm C-C seat tube with a 56cm C-C top tube. 102cm wheelbase. Triple cranks with 55-49-45 chainrings. Campy titanium freewheel. Notice the use of white nylon (?) washers throughout, plus touches like the (custom?) cable pulleys, velox handlebar endplug at the bottom of the fork steerer tube. Adjustable stem with TA cable holder. Brooks Pro Select saddle. Pletscher rack with (custom?) attachment and reversed rear brake. Left brake lever cable adjuster is a mount for a rear view mirror, not shown. What do you think?
