Subject: [CR]Searching for a 1960 and 1966 Schwinn Dealer Catalog


I received an e-mail recently inquiring about the components used on a 1960 Schwinn Paramount and, while digging through my PC, came upon some scans that someone sent me some time back (I forget who) of the Paramount line in the 1960 Catalog. These images jive with the bike in question (that does have a 1960 build date). Seeing these now makes me (and Eric Amlie) think that the 1960 Dealer Catalog on the SLDB site is probably earlier. Eric purchased the one on the site as a 1960 book, but there are no dates printed on it.

I would like to locate the correct 1960 Schwinn Dealer Catalog and one from 1966 (of which I also have no images or scans). The '60 catalog will have no date markings, but the Paramount section should match the scans found here:
