Just to add to the Paramount rim discussion. I have a Chromed 1970 Paramount P15 (although it could have started off as a P-10). In any case, when I purchased it the 2nd owner swore that he was told that the rims, laced to HF Campy hubs, were original. They are Fiamme Red Labels, with appropriate oval decals. After spending some time truing them I concur. The spokes and nipples appear to be of the period with long brass nipples & unnamed chromed spokes.
